Goose has released “Hungersite”, the latest track from the CT-based group’s forthcoming album Dripfield, due out on June 24th via No Coincidence Records. “Hungersite” follows “Borne” and “Dripfield” as the third single to be released from the album.
“The underlying idea of Dripfield is that of saturation,” guitarist/vocalist Rick Mitarotonda noted of the new phase for the band. “Imagine a piece of earth – it’s kind of like the water level rising and seeping up to the top. It’s a metaphor for the creativity we have inside of us. I’m not sure what pulls it out of us – maybe it’s our subconscious.”
Goose meets a critical moment on its steep upward trajectory with Dripfield, a collection of enthralling tracks structured with ample space for them to echo and expand through ever-larger venues around the country. “Hungersite”, which deals with lofty themes of empathy for humanity and harmonious existence, evokes that feeling of genuine inspiration seeping through, saying as much with the spaces it leaves empty to breathe as it does with its uplifting melody and climactic guitar solo.
“Whenever broaching global commentary territory, even if discreet and non-invasive in nature, it seems important to simultaneously challenge awareness of the self, and how we may or may not be living up to the ideals to which we speak,” Mitarotonda said of the introspective “Hungersite”.
“Hungersite” arrives alongside a new music video written by Carina Immer and filmed and edited by D. James Goodwin. In the clip, captured in various places around the band’s hometown of Norwalk, CT, the band channels the spirit and aesthetic of the 1999 cult classic workplace comedy, Office Space.
After catching a glimpse of a Fuji film canister during a Ben Affleck smoking meme-style cig break, this downtrodden worker bee decides to shirk his morning responsibilities in favor of a cleansing run through some foggy, mountain air. As the song picks up, a smile creeps onto our hero’s face, seemingly summoning the band to the mountaintop for a celebratory release. Feeling fulfilled, he finally struts his way back into the office with donuts and coffee for the crew and some crucial existential perspective for himself.
