Household stream “Undertow” on AbsolutePunk.net
HOUSEHOLD have unleashed their next single, “Undertow,” over at AbsolutePunk.net! The song is from Household’s impending release, Time Spent, available from Blood & Ink Records everywhere on September 25th.
Time Spent is the kind of album that ignores what is expected. Incorporating elements of hardcore, melodic punk, emo, and post-hardcore, Time Spent’s influences are varied and deep, but shaped together in a way that is invitingly familiar. Intricate guitar lines weave in and out of heavy breakdowns, lightning fast drumming effortlessly flows into hauntingly subdued passages, and Gilbert’s powerful newfound singing voice holds it all together. The album’s title and main lyrical themes point to asking the sorts of questions that apply to any young person, yet are presented with such maturity and reflectiveness that they’re relatable to listeners of any age. What are we choosing to do with our time, how are we letting our days go by? For the members of Household, the answers have an inspiring simplicity; they’re trying their best to do what they love.
