Stoat single Try not to think about it
Released May 19 th 2017
From upcoming Album Try not to think about it
Stoat are back with a new single and video Try not to think about it, to be released May 19 th , ahead of our new album, also called Try not to think about it, due later in the summer.
Right now, Try not to think about it is the tune we all most like to play live. The combination of a big rolling groove and a heavily harmonised chorus just makes me feel all fat and happy.
As always, it’s not easy to say exactly what it sounds like – but there are shades of Beastie Boys and Talking Heads. Just to show we’re not living entirely in the past, you could also compare it with Ezra Furman or Courtney Barnett. Lyrically, Cormac zeroes in on the downside of fatherhood. Nobody really talks about that kind of thing.
Try not to think about it is the third single to be taken from our upcoming album. The first was Talk Radio Makes Me Feel Alone. Pure M Zine said it was as infectious as anything currently in the Top 10. Bobby Green at Musician.ie said it was by far the greatest thing he’d heard this year.
Nice things were also said about the second single from the album – Trampolina. Nialler 9 named it video of the week in March. Those nice people at 8Radio have been giving it loads of airplay and said it filled their hearts with joy. That, my friends, is exactly what we’d been aiming for.
