Today, we are debuting the new single ‘We Don’t Care’ from Nervous Twitch, it’s lifted from their forthcoming album People Never Change out this October on Reckless Yes. ‘We Don’t Care’ is a rattling garage punk tune that takes on critics with a snarl. Listen below.
Jay from the band says: “I was playing with a chord progression which was simple and angular, yet rocking; kind of inspired by the Kinks, Wire and Swell Maps, who I was listening to a lot at the time. This song came about so quickly compared to some, the words flowed out of me thinking about the idea of rumours and how people talk behind your back. The repetitiveness of the structure adds to the attitude and snarl in the delivery.
The title was a definite nod to our faves The Ramones. I felt it gave the track a timeless, rock ‘n’ roll, rebellious vibe. When we were putting together our new album Some People Never Change I felt it was missing a fast punky number, which was the main origin of inspiration for this song. It’s kind of funny with hindsight how often those songs that come together quite quickly end up being one of the strong tracks, when perhaps at the time most of our attention and focus tends to be towards those which we have spent hours re-working. “
“Nervous Twitch—talk about a perfect band name! Listening to their fifth album, Some People Never Change, it’s hard not to notice the nervous energy of front woman Erin Hyde’s vocals. Nervous Twitch built a solid reputation for songs that bristle with punk energy, mixing a vibe that also incorporates girl group passion, post-punk angularity, and even the occasional surf guitar cool.
Some People Never Change offers up a baker’s dozen tracks that deal in attitude and the personal. Some People Never Change offers up curious insight into Erin Hyde’s and Jamie Churchley’s mindset and world—but more to the point, it’s a fun listen, full of anger and hope and love and frustration and more, easily relatable to those who happen to reside on Earth circa 2022.”
Some People Never Change will be released October 14, 2022 via Reckless Yes.
