“Will Get Fooled Again” By Savak

SAVAK have released a new video for “Will Get Fooled Again,” directed by Paul Heck, the track is off  the band’s forthcoming album Flavors Of Paradise, available March 1st via Ernest Jenning Recording Co./Peculiar Works Music. The band have  also announced U.S. East Coast tour dates in February and March, including a record release show on March 7 at Brooklyn’s Union Pool (tickets). In April the band will head to France for a two week tour that will kick off on April 10 in Paris at Mécanique Ondulatoire.

On “Will Get Fooled Again” the band’s Michael Jaworski says:

The absurd idea put forward by The Who of never getting fooled again is just dumb. And arrogant. There’s always a dude who thinks he’s smarter and better than everyone else. Thankfully most people can see through it and recognize the insecurity behind the charade.

This song addresses that insecurity. Specifically the vulnerability and precariousness of romantic relationships. We are all imperfect and it’s easy to get lost in our own heads, thinking things will get better. But can they? Ultimately that’s up to us. And truly knowing ourselves is the best bet for moving in that direction.

Despite the complexity of our interconnections, maybe there’s something we can learn from the simple and beautiful behaviors of seahorses (mentioned in the last verse). They go through a long and treacherous search to find their mates and, once they find each other, they are mates for life. They even dance for each other every morning
to reinforce their bond.

Curiously, it’s the male seahorses that reproduce. Applying that idea to humans, which would be revolutionary and undoubtedly eye-opening, I wondered if males of our species could reproduce, would we no longer be troubled by so much violence and war? Clearly there’s a lot we can absorb from the nature that’s all around us’.

The album was recorded in Chicago at Steve Albini’s Electrical Audio studio without Steve Albini. For a band that has toured Europe five times and never set foot in California, recording 12 songs in 3 days was a breeze across the Danube. The band hunkered down, jammed out ideas in 2 marathon sessions, played a couple of shows to test drive the new material and then got to work with Matthew Barnhart (Superchunk, Bob Mould).
