Genre-blurring supergroup Trade Wind have just released ‘Nine Tails’, a new song from their forthcoming third LP, ‘The Day We Got What We Deserved’.
Vocalist/guitarist Jesse Barnett had this to say of the track.
“Lyrically ‘Nine Tails’ is about ego. When lots of personalities are coming together to work on something creative, everyone has to try their best to set that aside or things can get derailed pretty easily. It’s about the obnoxious obsession an ‘artist’ can have about being known for what they do or what they have contributed. Is that important? On some level, I suppose. But I think humbleness is important to the process because at this point anyone who creates anything nowadays is an extension of something or someone else. Relax. Collaboration will set you free. Write a song and tell people someone else wrote it. Musically this song is pretty spacey and almost reminds me of something like Beck. It’s a sound I’d never really had a chance to work on before and it was really fun to reach into a different toolbox.”

The band’s third album, ‘The Day We Got What We Deserved’, is out on May 21st 2021 from Other People Records.
