Singled Out: Lucky Jukebox Brigade's Bertyl
"I like to keep it vague when I'm talking about what songs mean, because I don't want to tell anyone what to think. So I'll tell you what this song means to me and the feeling I had when I wrote it.
Bertyll is about stolen moments. Have you ever locked eyes with someone and wished that time would stand still so you could say everything you've always wanted to say? That moment is where Bertyll takes place. That's the violet room.
It doesn't have to be an alternate reality. What if we were unabashedly honest with each other all the time? There's so much freedom in that. I think we'd feel more real and more alive. Go lock eyes with that person you're thinking of and say everything you've always wanted to say."
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself here and learn more about the EP, which was produced by Mike Watts (The Dear Hunter, As Tall As Lions, Gates, Glassjaw), right here!
