"She's just trying to reach you..."

Protomartyr's Joe Casey: "I like allegories, fake stories, old bits of news and somewhat ridiculous imagery. The music the fellas come up with fires my brain in that way. It allows me to sing about dire things like politics, human existence and life-draining jobs without being too hectoring. Politics, like anything in life, has a way of worming its way into songs... especially since world affairs took on the smell and texture of vomit on the sidewalk as we were writing."
