The Nashville, Tennessee band have recently dropped their latest single ‘Eureka’. It’s the band’s first single since 2017 and it’s certianly a strong return for The By Gods.
Talking about ‘Eureka’ the George Pauley (guitar) had this to say:
“This is the first single we’ve put out since our last record, Move On, in 2017. Some terrible things happened right at the release of that record and everything just needed to be put on hold and things have been slow to pick back up. I wrote like 35+ songs as I reflected and processed everything. We reached back out to our friend and producer Alex Newport (Death Cab For Cutie, Bloc Party, At The Drive-In, City and Colour) who produced our last album. We worked through all of the songs together and went in to record a bunch of them. He really pushed us to try new things in the studio and it was some very good therapy for me. We’re happy to get these songs out to the world.”
‘Eureka’ is a stand-out track for the band with it’s soft yet searing vocals, cascading bass-line and impulsive riffs. It’s not formulaic in design but wholly infectious. There’s a sense of hollowness within the track, boasting many levels to The By Gods‘ music.
