The artistic irony of good songwriting is hard to ignore. Take, for example, my recent experience with the discovery of the latest New Druids single, LA’s On Fire (Again). The song, released as a preview of their upcoming album Making Love To Make Music To Make Love To, popped up on to my radar about a day before the news of the most recent California wildfires being caused by a gender reveal party went public. The juxtaposition of this reality in tandem with the nuanced songwriting displayed by the New Druids, which perfectly props up individualistic lives driven by image and impressions set against Los Angeles being on fire (yet again), presents one of those classic ‘art imitating life imitating art’ situations without even trying. If this song catches your attention, drop a pre-order for the mid-October release, or simply share it around, and always support your local creatives.
