Trash Boat Release New Song Synthetic Sympathy
Ahead of their UK headlining tour next month, St Albans punks Trash Boat have released a new song and video, Synthetic Sympathy.
Following up from last year’s excellent Crown Shyness album, the song deals with the way problems and traumas can make others see you in a different light.
“When you’re experiencing problems in life that are long term or permanent, it often alters the way in which your friends and family interact with you,” explains singer Tobi Duncan. “Such a prominent thing can become the first port of call for conversation or serve as a platform for people to offer sympathy, as this is really the only thing available.
“I’m not saying this is bad. I’m fortunate enough to have people I know that love me and know I love them. I think being honest and discussing these things are important. People need support. This song is just a source for me to vent about the looming dread of life, perpetuated by a never ending chain of equally inconsequential conversations, that after so much time and repetition, only serve to remind me that it exists until it doesn’t feel real anymore.”
