Don't Need, Don't Care (Big Stir Digital Single No. 16)
IN DEED, Uppsala, Sweden's finest purveyors of sweet and spiky indie-pop and the latest official addition to the Big Stir Records roster, makes their label debut with this week's 16th BIG STIR DIGITAL SINGLE, "Don't Need, Don't Care" b/w a non-album version of "Marry Myself"! The single will be released Friday, February 15 and is available for pre-order now!
"Don't Need, Don't Care" received enthusiastic airplay throughout the band's home country and beyond as the lead single from the original 2018 release of the band's second LP Everest, and is accompanied by a music video. Written by guitarist RICHARD ÖHRN and passionately sung by frontwoman LINDA KARLSBERG, it's a soaring slice of melodic magic, a classic brushoff tune for the ages. Everest (which garnered a number of honors including the Number 2 slot on International Pop Overthrow Festival main man DAVID BASH's Top 100 releases for 2018) has until now only been physically available on vinyl in Eurpopean markets, is set for its first release on CD with a completely revamped track list and new material from BIG STIR RECORDS in Spring of 2019.
The B-side "Marry Myself" appears here in a version previously available only on IN DEED's now-out-of-print 2000 debut EP Apology. It's significantly different from the version on the At 4000 Meters album which features cheeky spoken word intro and outro passages: this version is flat out rock from start to finish, and, like the A-side, clocks in at under 3 minutes of hooks and harmony, propelled by MARCUS SEGERSVÄRD's taut drumming. (At 4000 Meters can be found as a digital download at the Big Stir Records website.)
Much more is coming from IN DEED and BSR in 2019, including the new CD as well as the band's first ever US tour dates in the fall. Stand by for the official release date of the expanded Everest album and other news from our Swedish darlings as Big Stir Records is thrilled to debut IN DEED!
