The new EP from N.Y.C.-based indie-pop project Ski Lodge, New Life, is due out on February 26 via Old Flame Records. It's the follow up to 2013's Big Heart, and this new single "Crush Your Heart" has the kind of expansive, heart-thumping sound that's reminiscent of '80s new wave. It's like if The Psychedelic Furs and the Eurythmics teamed up to make a really uplifting song about dying alone.
"Lyrically this song for me is kind of about the need for humans to have some sort of partner to go through life with," Ski Lodge frontman Andrew Marr told The FADER over email. "I'm kind of questioning whether some people are actually cool with being alone, and how there is so much fear in people about never finding someone. I produced the song myself, with the help of my drummer Jake Beal. It was a really fun song to produce, because I felt like I hadn't recorded anything quite like it in the past."
