Nashville-by-way-of-Ozark, Missouri (and a few other places in between) roots collective My Politic is readying to release their studio debut, 12 Kinds Of Lost, on August 25th.
Propelled by compelling songwriting, tight harmonies, and stringed prowess, My Politic has created a storytelling masterpiece on 12 Kinds Of Lost; the album explores the human condition through empathetic narratives against a backdrop of Appalachian-influenced Americana, country, and folk music, and relates tales through a series of characters coping with heartache, depression, anxiety, detaching from roots, dealing with cancer, and fighting addiction.
Today, they unleash a new single, “Bored Young Ghost,” a lighthearted, late-night contemplation about a life–and afterlife–of boredom. “I got the idea while I was workin’, the idea that people bored in this life stay bored in the afterlife and it’s the reason ghosts come around and haunt folks. That made me laugh,” explains quick-witted frontman Kaston Guffey. “I guess it has a dark sense of humor to it–the guy in the song tries to figure out different ways to avoid all of it and finally gives up at the end of the song,” he adds. “Giving the song and that subject matter a classic country feel made me laugh too.”
