Calexico Post New Song Under The Wheels

Tuesday, 16 January 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Calexico have posted a new song, Under The Wheels.

It will feature on their forthcoming LP, 'The Thread That Keeps Us', which is due to arrive next week through City Slang and follow up 2015's 'Edge of the Sun'.

Discussing the song, guitarist and vocalist Joey Burns said:

"When coming up with the material for the new album we pushed ourselves to reinvent and discover new musical expressions. One of the more upbeat songs that came about was the track “Under The Wheels”.  Sergio Mendoza our keyboardist who wrote the music felt like it touched on a bit of the Latin and indie rock elements of artists like Los Fabulousos Cadillacs and The Clash, and it reminded me of the vibe from David Bowie’s album “Let’s Dance”.

Lyrically I imagined following a character wandering city streets on their skateboard with earbuds blasting while swerving in and around themes of anxiety and worldly pressures. The weight that the words convey ultimately gives way to the light and optimism of the rhythms and melody. It’s a sign of peace in this era of war machines, a path that brings us closer together to find resolve and solutions, “from the core to the seams the threads that we seek.”

The Arizona band will return to the UK in March as part of their European tour in support of the new record. Tickets are on sale now.

Calexico Upcoming Tour Dates are as follows

Wed March 28 2018 - BRISTOL Trinity Centre
Thu March 29 2018 - LONDON O2 Shepherds Bush Empire
