Los Angeles-based synth-pop outfit The Sometimes Island (AKA: Matt Blankenship Jr.) has released another new track called “Can’t Move On,” which will likely appear on his upcoming EP, Bad People, dropping in July.
Blankenship has this to say about “Can’t Move On” —
“Two very close friends of mine were dating, and when they broke up I was in the middle of it, hearing both sides and feeling very torn. Those sentiments channeled into this song, written from each of their perspectives. The inability to communicate – with battle lines drawn and pride on the line – made me feel a little like a cloud floating over a battlefield. This song was my way of dealing with it, using the music symbolically to put in little silences and finally an explosive, dramatic bridge.”
