To anyone else who feels as old as I do watching Taking Back Sunday (hey, I was 16 when they first made it into my CD collection..), it’s surprising to see the early-emo starlets still making music, let alone all-grown-up tunes (admittedly, still with the classic TBS sound). Their new single, ‘Better Homes And Gardens‘ deals with the breakup of a marriage, a step forward from the tales of teenage romance that their earlier work focused on.
Watch the video below:
Its certainly the week for nostalgia, isn’t it? We’ve had The Used, now we’ve got Taking Back Sunday releasing a video for their new single, ‘Flicker, Fade‘, taken from their new album ‘Happiness Is‘, due out on March 18.
Seems like the former emo-kings have thrown off the sounds of old and embraced – dare I say it – a country tinge, at least if this track is anything to go by. I’m not saying lead singer Adam Lazzara has taken up the banjo, or wearing leather chaps, or given up his trademark vocals for that matter, but there’s definitely something a little more earthy and a lot less skinny-jeaned to this track..
Have a listen for yourselves:
