Single: ‘Blame Game;’ Recorded at Rax Trax Studios Chicago with engineers Rick Barnes and Andy Schumacher
The allure of new love often enchantingly captivates people into always believing in the best of the person they’re drawn to, and doesn’t always offer a full view on their true personality. But the further a couple delves into their connection, the more often one side is unfairly blamed for many of the troubles in the relationship. Chicago-based band, Too Much Saturn, is stunningly offering a new view on the ‘Blame Game,’ which is their latest single that was released earlier this month. While the blame game is certainly not a new concept, and can be applied to many types of relationships, the quartet is embracing the fact that they must now learn how to contend with the strained connection.
‘The Blame Game’ is powerfully written from the perspective of a character in a relationship who feels the other person isn’t taking full responsibility for their actions. However, the main character also acknowledges they may also be playing the blame game, and isn’t taking accounting for his own questionable actions.
Too Much Saturn’s new single is another stunning example of the musicians’ alluring and stunning ability to craft songs that are not only emotional and relatable in their lyrics, but also enthralling in their instrumentation. ‘The Blame Game’ features an an original mix of fun and soaring pop-indie rock melody, hooks and harmonies that are crafted through commanding drums and 12 string bass, as well as swirling keyboards and ambient guitars.
The relentless rhythm of the instrumentation drives the raw and emotional lyrics, which tantalizingly chronicles how when the narrator looks the person they love in the eye, they’re not surprised to catch them in a lie. The lyrics are also precise in their detailing of the intensity of the blame always being placed on one person. The tracks notes that neither person has anything left to gain from the relationship, which is caught in a continuous round of deception.
