Basement Revolver have a way of perking my ears up and making me feel like I’m in a scene out of Empire Records – which, if you know me, is pretty much the way to my heart. The Canadian trio are currently gearing up for the release of their debut EP on July 15 and second single, “Words,” is pretty much everything twenty-somethings have been feeling for years.
Singer Chrisy Hurn states:
“‘Words’ was written when I was in my last semester of university. I lived downtown and school was up on the mountain and somewhat inaccessible by bus. I was writing my honours psych thesis at the time, as well as many other papers, when it all began to feel meaningless. No matter what I said, in the end, words are just words, they can be stringed together to form something powerful but without context they become as mundane and uncontrollable as one’s commute to and from school. Similarly, a paper is just a paper, a degree is just a degree, and there is so much more to life than the plans and the empires that we build for ourselves.”
