Amelia Bushell, Dan Peskin, Micah Weisberg, Bill Dvorak and Piyal Basu are Grim Streaker, a Brooklyn band making razor-sharp modern punk that harkens back to the icons of the genre. They're gearing up for release of their debut album, No Vision, out May 17 via Local Fun Boy, and today, they're dropping "Sensitive Demon," a beast of a track spawned from a simple cup of coffee. Speaking with The FADER, Bushell further illustrated the track's caffeinated origin:
"For a lot of people, grabbing coffee is an everyday part of the morning routine. Maybe you’re all dolled up, ready for an important day, maybe you’ve got no make up on at all and are extremely hungover. Whatever the case, your barista sees it all. They see you at your most vulnerable, your best and your worst...through your good moods and your bad moods.
The phrase “if you can’t handle me at my worst, you don’t deserve me at my best” is some relationship advice that I stand by. This song encapsulates my fantasy of hooking up with my barista, a person who sees it all, and still wants me."
