When Yeesh was on tour this past October, we played in New York City where Danny of One Point Twenty One Gigawatts told me about the new Krill EP which is about someone discovering that he is a character within a Pile song. My first reaction was how witty, clever, and utterly stupid this sounded; a self-referential record about Krill’s peers seemed brilliant and probably hard to pull off.
I came across this track from the record last night, and was blown away by how much it spoke to me. Yeesh has been pretty much %51 percent of my life and my identity for the better part of three years now, and I am constantly struggling to crush my own self-doubt and validate our musicianship in the face of such wildly talented bands like Krill and Pile. After a couple of listens, I was touched to be reminded that every band has these difficulties, and I was amazed that Krill was able to turn a silly concept into an anthem of anxiety.
