People Years “False Start”

Birmingham, Alabama’s People Years are preparing to release their new album, Animalism on April 12th. Their new single, “False Start” mixes droning synths, a steady kick drum, and skittery bass flourishes. The obtuse lyrics are where things get interesting. Starting with the line “I don’t know what you were meant to be/striking out on the Arabian sea,” the song’s meaning doesn’t get anymore apparent. The lead singer definitely made a false start but in a deep sea race? It’s unclear.
