Independent hard rock band Swim The Current premiered its latest single and video over the weekend.
The band, the brainchild of guitarist Greg Antine, debuted its new single, ‘Cognitive Dissonance‘ Sunday along with its companion lyric video. The new single originally premiered Friday through BrooklynVegan.
The song features guest vocals by Chaka Malik (Burn, Orange 9mm). Bassist George Pond (Disciples of Verity), and guitarist Joe Gareri (Ernie Ball, Music Man artist, Joe Gereri Project) are also involved in the song.
The musical arrangement featured in ‘Cognitive Dissonance’ blends elements of aggro-rock and nu-metal to form its foundation. The song’s lyrical theme is meant as a commentary about the mental and emotional impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on people, according to comments from the group.
Antine explained the concept behind the song’s lyrical theme briefly.
“This song is an introduction into a world of isolation during a time of pandemic, frustration, and media propaganda,” said Antine. “It is a whirlwind for the search for inner sanctum.”
Pond expanded on Antine’ comments.
“This song is a culmination of feelings such as isolation, anger, frustration towards all the things in the world that fragmented into a whole as they come together in these unprecedented times,” said Pond.
