song premiere: "Chew Toy" - Sass
Although named for a common toy that’s normally discarded after your pet rips it to shred, “Chew Toy” is anything like its oft-forgettable namesake. The lead single from an upcoming debut album from Sass, “Chew Toy” is a calamitous grower, shedding its placid beginnings and subtle presence for a roaring moment of reckoning: “Will I ever be able/to separate/the love I have for you from the things you took away/when I was too young to know better.”
As this track continues, its guitar work and drums take on tremendous weight, adding intense emotion to promises of adoration and questions of self-discovery. Straddling this line between outright emotion and understated secrecy, “Chew Toy” propels you further into its heart with each passing second, and by its conclusion, you’re left utterly stunned by all that you’ve witnessed.
