Union Duke’s latest single, “123,” is a tune about modern apathy.
“The original plan was to write a balls-to-the-wall drinking diddy with shades of psychedelia and no social commentary – apparently, we’re too jaded for that now.”
Pretty quickly, it turned into a song about being young and getting drunk as a desperate act of escapism. “123” is basically Brave New World: The Song.
Instead of soma, it’s whiskey and sleeping in.
Jeff Hazin produced the track between his own studio and Toronto’s Taurus Recording.
You can hear Alan Zemaitis featured on the organ.
In the two years since our last record,
Golden Days , we’ve been steadily travelling and unravelling across the country. Now, we’re ready to share our lessons learned.
Keep your ears, eyes and hearts peeled for even more new songs of love, distance, heartache and revelry over the coming months.
