With time spent in All Sensory Void and NGHTCRWLRS, prolific songwriter Eric Goldberg is readying the his next project titled Delicate Flowers. A four-track, self-titled debut EP is due later this week with a previously released cover of The Vaselines’ “Jesus Doesn’t Want Me For A Sunbeam” tacked on the end.
Speak Into My Good Eye is happy to host the exclusive premiere of lead single, “Inherently A Drag,” below. The Delicate Flowers EP is a primer for a longer full length already in the can as Goldberg elaborates on its genesis and the singles meaning:
“I wrote half the songs for this EP and upcoming album in one extremely productive evening, including this song. In fact, this is the song that started the whole Delicate Flowers project. The song is about not believing in anything and how that’s a bummer but that at the same time, you can’t really fool yourself.”
That mature, world-weariness is backed by atmospheric, jangly acoustic strums, echoed harmonies and a sense of hope springing up out of the uncertainty on “Inherently A Drag.” Essentially, There Is a Light That Never Goes Out.
According to Goldberg, he’ll be playing the odd New Brunswick basement solo until he’s ready to get a whole band together, which will primarily comprised of members of his old group, The Nico Blues. A full band All Sensory Void album is also on the way.
