song: "Skateboard" - Mermaid Book Club
It can truly feel as if things will never get any easier. No matter how much older we get, there are still new difficulties and unexpected life woes waiting around the corner. Fortunately, Mermaid Book Club wants to find the bright side in all that.
Their sunny single “Skateboard” is a poppy celebration of attempting to hold tight to youth, even if that means trying your hand at skateboarding on carpet. In a track that’s all about learning something new, and in this case it’s skateboarding, Mermaid Book Club serve up an always needed reminder that age, and the idea of being behind, is truly nothing to worry yourself with. Although we might not expect every curveball that life throws our way, we’re all doing our best to figure it out. And somehow, life’s difficulties seem a lot less daunting when they’re soundtracked with Mermaid Book Club’s intricate, light guitar work and sunny, breezy vocals. Press pause on being an actual adult for a little and soak up this one.
The single appears on Mermaid Book Club’s upcoming album, Relatable Content, scheduled for release later in July on Anything Bagel Records.
