Rubblebucket released a new single, “Geometry,” set for the band’s upcoming album, Earth Worship, due out on October 21 via Grand Jury. The group led by Kalmia Traver and Alex Toth also announced 2023 tour dates around the record.
Rubblebucket detailed Earth Worship in August and shared the title track. The band followed with “Cherry Blossom” in September along with a handful of Fall 2022 tour dates. The latest single, “Geometry,” arrives today ahead of the LP’s release on Friday. Both Traver and Toth shared insights on the new single.
“I first heard this song when Alex uploaded it to a group Soundcloud playlist during a week-long remote songwriting workshop we’d organized with 30 of our musician friends in 2020. He wrote me a separate note saying it was about our friendship. Our friendship has lasted almost 20 years so far and has contained many mistakes, trials, tribulations, albums, tours, tears, arguments, swims, nights, mornings, laughs, and infinity wild dances. Probably most fundamentally it’s contained a dogged mutual support that I can’t always fully comprehend…I really love this song, and the opportunity to lay down an extra honky alto sax solo that turned into a hook of sorts was a privilege. It was another privilege to play (on bari sax) the maximally huge horn line at the end – penned by our collaborator Sean Smith.”
“This was the first time in my life I wrote songs exclusively using only bass and drum machine. In my mind I was trying to make disco songs. I like loosely aiming for a genre and then landing on something that sounds like its own thing. I had the session open and I was blanking out so I literally ‘called on’ Kal to get inspo vibes. She told me that something she loves about a lot of dance music is the lyrical repetition and how few words there are. The B section of “Geometry” is a pretty literal representation of that moment and that inspiration between two. friends/collaborators.”
