Gunke releases a single entitled ‘Football’.
The follow-up to previous single ‘Mouse’ from 2020, it’s the second solo release from Luc Grindle (Dutch Wine, HEYUP, Moonsoup).
The song is, he says, is about “the anxieties of not fitting in” (“Football? Softball? I don’t know the difference”).
“‘Football’ took a long time to mature as a song; four years of recordings in fact!,” he says of the track.
“I didn’t really engage in sports growing up, so often felt out of my depth when conversing with friends who would talk about last night’s game or whatever; I made the chorus with football chants in mind as way to a kind of counteract that notion.
“I took a lot of inspiration from The Cribs during the writing process, a lot of their fans are football lads, despite the band having no interest in the sport, I found that quite fitting to pay some kind of homage to.”
Grindle wrote and performed ‘Football’, which was written by Jack Boyle, and Melissa Brisbane – the latter of whom also mixed the track.
