Pop-rockers Remo Drive have just released a video for ‘Ode To Joy 2’, the latest choice of single to come from the band’s soon-to-be-released third album, ‘A Portrait Of An Ugly Man’.
Vocalist/guitarist Erik Paulson expanded further on the song.
“The lyrics were inspired by the excess I perceived around me as I transitioned from being a college student into touring full-time. Most people who’ve done either can confirm that many social interactions are built around having a drink or smoking weed. Once the honeymoon period of exploration was over for me, I became frustrated with the omnipresence of drugs and alcohol and wanted to write about it… oh, what fun it is laughing at nothing, by this age we all have it down. When I wrote the final version of the lyrics, I tried to connect with how I think when I’m drunk. I always feel as though I’m loving and hating every second of it. This song captures that same ambivalence.”
