“Bored Of Guitar” By Psymon Spine

Psymon Spine share their latest single, “Bored of Guitar,” the track is off their forthcoming album, Head Body Connector, due out on February 23rd via Northern Spy Records (Shilpa Ray). The band includes Noah Prebish, Peter Spears, and Brother Michael.

“”Bored of Guitar” was one of the earlier tracks we worked on for Head Body Connector. Like many of our songs, it started as two separate ideas that Peter, Michael, and I (Noah) smashed into one and then expanded upon. The lyrics came to me piecemeal inspired by conversations I had been having with Michael about the kind of guitar-centric dude rock bands we were getting tired of seeing. The underlying fear for me, of course, was that we were one of those bands. Nothing disgusts a person like seeing in others what bothers them about themselves. The song is an amped-up meditation on (amongst other things) self-criticism, priorities shifting around, and the hilarious, painful, beautiful, humiliating, exhilarating experience of being in a band. It’s also about me working on my relationship with my younger self, the one who set most of my current life experiences into motion long ago. I love him and we’ve both got notes for each other.”

The video for “Bored of Guitar” was directed by Max Mainwood who says “I wanted to represent this song with a visual narrative that came from the band’s storytelling, but also pull from my personal interpretation of the song. This video plays as an energetic backdrop to a groovy tune, as well as an underlying story left for the audience to discover.”

Head Body Connector was mostly written in 2020, when shows were not happening. The band split their time between various home studios and friends’ back porches in Montauk, the Catskills, Boston, and Brooklyn. Outside it was fall, crisp autumn air, political disquietude looming in the background lending itself to an undeniable longing for companionship. “It felt like we had collectively jumped from one timeline to another, more bizarre one,” says Noah. The theme of time – fractured, chopped, and screwed – is central both to the songs and album art for HBC, the latter of which was designed by New York-based artist Bucky Boudreau. “Head Body Connector is our response to a world even more chaotic than usual,” says Peter Spears, “and an exploration of the little joys, anxieties, and absurdities that world has to offer.”
