Using their 2019 to drop new songs here and there as they please, South Carolina’s Hundredth have now just shared a brand new cut called ‘Leave Yourself’.
The song initially premiered over on FLOOD Magazine, and this is what vocalist/guitarist Chadwick Johnson had to say about it.
“‘Leave Yourself’ started out with the loose aim of trying to write our version of ‘Just Like Heaven’ by The Cure. Obviously we veered from that path along the way, but it’s funny to think about where songs start. While we were putting together the instrumental we almost ruined it by trying to overcomplicate it. When I went to write lyrics and vocals, I decided to play on that exact concept. We often overthink and overanalyze rather than relying on instinct.
The song is about the dichotomy of wanting to do everything and nothing at the same time. It’s both an external question of possibility and a solution to internal scrutiny. Ultimately, ‘Leave Yourself’ is a song about getting out of your own way.”
You can stream and listen to ‘Leave Yourself’ below.
More details on further releases and plans from Hundredth will be confirmed as they develop.
