Norwegian Arms: Tired of Being Cold.
Our old friend Keith Birthday, aka Brendan Mulvihill of Norwegian Arms, reached out to us to say that Norwegian Arms dropped the first song from their forthcoming LP (most likely due out in the fall).
“It’s a song expressing frustration at being stuck in -40 degree temperatures for an extended period of time in a place one doesn’t feel comfortable in and longing for home,” Brendan wrote to us. “Homesickness at it’s rawest. That being said, the song is really upbeat.”
The track, as well as the full album, was written while Brendan was on a Fulbright scholarship in Siberia, in Tomsk, Russia. He wrote about his experiences for JUMP last summer. You can find the story here.
Norwegian Arms will play tonight at Kung Fu Necktie with Warm Weather and Ecce Shnak. Find details here.
