Tenspoke Indies Week: Over Your Shoulder

(antiMusic) Tenspoke Indies debut album, 'Blinded By The Sound,' comes out March 4, 2008. With a sound often compared to Jimmy Eat World but with indie cred, they got our attention, so we asked the band's singer/guitarist (and British ex-pat) Rich Wise to pick his favorite five tracks from the CD and tell us a bit about each one. Here is Rich with today's song "Over Your Shoulder".

One day I was thinking about what it would be really like to be in the military. I had written a song before, called "Tank," which was much more of an aggressive rant on war and government conspiracy. But it was also about the unquestioning way that the military just goes out and does what it has to do such a sacrifice and at such a cost. So, with "Over Your Shoulder," I was really trying to think about that sacrifice, what it's like to leave your loved ones behind and be so far away, whether you believe in the cause or not. I decided to take more of a love story approach for this song, telling the story through a soldier's eyes overseas. I guess the cool thing is, without knowing what I was writing about, someone could easily put their own ideas and thoughts into this one. The lyrics are pretty open-ended, and I really like that about this song.

You don't have to wait until March to get a taste of what Tenspoke Indie have to offer, they're hitting the road next month. You can grab the tour dates and preview some of the tracks from 'Blinded By The Sound' - right here!
