Listen: Too Much, Too Recently by Ramonda Hammer
Too Much, Too Recently by Ramonda Hammer
It’s been far too long since we’ve covered Los Angeles-based indie grunge-pop band Ramonda Hammer, but I’m thrilled to share with you their newest track called “Too Much, Too Recently,” from the band’s EP Destroyers due August 4 on New Professor which can be pre-ordered at Bandcamp.
Ramonda Hammer’s Devin Davis has this to say about the new track:
I’m gonna get real real here. This song is about our bassist Andy, who is also my ex-boyfriend, and one of my very best friends (yes, we’ve heard the No Doubt parallel before -_-). Andy and I have been through a lot, but continue to be in a band together and make things work. He puts up with so much of my shit and I love him dearly. We both have been super sad about life and relationships recently, and I wrote this song for both of us, to help make sense of things. The reason the lyrics say, ‘It’s over for now, and I can’t help wondering how many times before,’ is because I’m curious how many times we’ve done this in other realities, and I also wonder how many times we will love/hurt ourselves and each other before we can be content. I’m not sure about past lives or parallel dimensions, I like to entertain many ideas, but I often come to the conclusion that I’m meant to be alone in this life for the greater good of my art. And that’s okay for me for now, so long as I get to experience all the love from friends like Andy who I’m fairly positive I’ve met and loved before, and will again. Lastly, if all of what I’ve just said doesn’t make any sense to anyone, I hope they at least feel something when they listen to the song.
