Singled Out: My Darling Fury's Blots in the Margins

Today Todd Matthews and Danny Reyes from My Darling Fury tells us about the song "Blots in the Margins" from their brand new debut album "Licking Wounds," which is being released today. Here is the story:

Todd Matthews: This is the first song we worked on together as a band. Alex and Danny brought the song to us as an acoustic guitar and vocal demo. I loved being encouraged by the others to bow my bass throughout the entire song which is not the typical role of an upright bass in a band setting. I knew that we were on to something great between the five of us once we finished working on Blots in the Margins. It marks the beginning of our band to me.

Danny Reyes on lyrics: Somewhat inspired by the Occupy Movement, particularly the "we are the 99%" sound bite. I think of society's plan written on a big sheet of paper, just a few words on a seemingly empty page and in the margins, a bunch of ink blots. And that's everybody. That's you and me. Stuck in the margins of the big plan. But really, the song works for anybody who has ever felt like they were left out or marginalized. Alex had the idea of adding the phrase "hold on to my hand" which I think really has a comforting effect and helps to bring the listener in.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself right here!
