Delta Spirit Shares ‘The Pressure’ Single & Video
The new record marks Delta Spirit’s first album in six years and “The Pressure” is the LP’s fourth single following “Home Again.” Frontman Matthew Logan Vasquez detailed the song in Paste Magazine, who premiered the video.
Read Matthew’s statement below:
Psychological projection is a defense mechanism in which the human ego defends itself against unconscious impulses or qualities (both positive and negative) by denying their existence in themselves while attributing them to others. We live in an unmanageable world, with unrealistic expectations of ourselves and each other. We are both the hero and villain of our own story. While our ego is trying to keep us the former, unbeknownst to us everyone around is possibly experiencing the latter. It’s been over a year since I wrote this song, and so much has obviously changed for all of us since then. I can’t help but laugh/cringe when I hear the lyric ‘the masks we made are wearing thin.’ Now in this time of COVID-19, BLM, and this upcoming election, I hope I can learn to share my convictions and experiences with those who disagree with me with the same love and grace that I am learning to offer myself.
