THEE UNEMPLOYED NEW RELEASE: ECLIPSE
Our favorite Austin duo “Thee Unemployed,” is back at it with their newest release, “Eclipse.” As always we just want to dance when their songs come on. Behind the lyrics, it’s truly relatable which we always love. They share that in times when you’re looking for more and don’t find it right away you see it as failure. As creatives, we feel this is something we deal with more often than not and to have someone straight up say they go through that too, that’s really what music is about. So, thank you “Thee Unemployed,” for another relatable hit.
THE HONEY: WHAT IS THE STORY/MESSAGE WITH YOUR SONG “ECLIPSE?” WHAT WAS THE INSPIRATION?
THEE UNEMPLOYED: “We really wanted to go with something that people could unwind to and relax with. Something important about the timing of this track is that we wanted people to peak into the different type of music we can create and where we want to take this thing to.”
THE HONEY: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LYRIC OF THE SONG? BREAK IT DOWN FOR US!
“Time to win the award
For highest to ever soar
Kept a scar from the sun
Now what I’m
Destination for some
Others blaming the source
Tryna finish the run
Lay a brick let me block out the noise”
“This line is talking about the start of any journey. You want to aim for greatness in all things that you do; the reference was the term ‘shoot for the stars.’ Sometimes when you reach something, that thing isn’t quite what you thought it was, so you keep your scar and look for that next thing. If that next ‘thing’ isn’t reached immediately there is a sense of failure. Dealing with that failure is tough but the only remedy is to finish the job. Lay a brick let me block out the noise; one step at a time.”
THE HONEY: ANYTHING ELSE YOU WANT TO SHARE ABOUT THIS SONG?
“We used the term eclipse because the high never lasts forever. Like most things in life, situations are ever changing; there is always going to be another eclipse.”
