It’s been a touch over a year since Oakland-based rockers Everyone Is Dirty released their great LP, My Neon’s Dead. Now, the band is back with a new take on their single “Banana Split” which we’re happy to be premiering today.
The whirring psych-punk track chugs like a locomotive liable to run off the tracks at any time. As Everyone Is Dirty’s Sivan Lioncub shares:
“‘Banana Split’ is like a movie training montage accompanying the underdog as they build super human strength; fortified with bananas and smothered in chocolate sauce. Like a mantra, When I recite the lyrics of the song they put a spell on me and I feel strong, crazy, invincible, like a deranged super hero. When I play the violin part I feel like its coming out of my mouth. I like to scream the melody out while I play it.”
