A new week is here once again, but as another week gets underway, independent rock act Mag Electric is doing its part to help people get through another week.
The band did so with the premiere of its new single, ‘Thorn in My Side‘ and a companion video Sunday. It is fitting that the band premiered the new single and video late Sunday night, considering Monday is a thorn in the side of every person in this world.
He he did not specifically note Monday as that proverbial thorn, drummer Bill Peluso did say in regards to the song’s lyrical theme, it is a commentary about how we all deal with those proverbial thorns in our side, regardless of what they may be.
‘”Thorn in my Side’ is Mag Electric’s hard rock expression of life’s annoyances and problems,’ Peluso said. “Brought about by daily struggles most everyone experiences in all walks of life, the song expresses a response to the thorn in your side in your own life. All wrapped up in a psychedelic hard rock package, ‘Thorn’ figures to be a song rock fans can relate to as we go through life picking thorns out of our own sides.”
The musical arrangement featured in Mag Electric’s new single, which is the second from the band behind ‘Iron Horse,’ is an interesting presentation in its own right. The controlled guitar and bass pair with front man Jack Simchak’s vocals to make the whole a work that is easily comparable to works from Type O Negative, just not as melancholy in its mood. Simchak even sounds so much like Steele through his vocal delivery. The comparison is incredible.
The video for ‘Thorn in My Side’ is its own unique presentation. It features the band performing its new single against a very distinctly psychedelic video effect that harkens back, stylistically, to the kind of videos made in the 1960s and 70s.
