Cola – the new project from former Ought members Tim Darcy and Ben Stidworthy and US Girls/The Weather Station drummer Evan Cartwright – have shared a new single from their upcoming debut album Deep In View, which is due out this Friday via Fire Talk. ‘Fulton Park’ follows previous entries ‘Blank Curtain’, ‘So Excited’, ‘Degree’, and ‘Water Table’. Check it out below.
“Ben and I had a flow writing this record where we would send each other demos every Friday,” Darcy explained in a press release. “It was a really motivating way to write, as I would spend the week working on something but then get the bonus of hearing what Ben had written when I sent him my track. I heard ‘Fulton Park’ and was immediately excited to work on vocals for it. It’s such an interesting instrumental. These lush almost psychedelic guitars in the intro and chorus are paired with this really stripped down almost honky tonk verse. It conjured in my mind this kind of old west imagery. I suppose looking back on the lyrics now, that same kind of juxtaposition is present. Similar to ‘Landers’, it takes a look at the natural world and then the odd, magical, sometimes empty things that humans do on that landscape.”
