Guitarist and vocalist offered the following for Stereogum mag, who premiered tthhe single:
The title track to the record, “After the Party,” is the central emotional epiphany of the album, written in images. They’re mundane moments etched behind eyelids that culminate into meaningful realizations, and of course give way to the beautiful trifecta of Sex! Drugs! Rock n Roll! It’s a bit of an ode to Meat Loaf’s verse in “I’d Do Anything for Love,” but the God of drums? You lost me.
Vladimir Nabokov once said in an interview: “I don’t think in language. I think in images.” I wanted to play off that idea, and use imagery as unexciting as the sludge in the bottom of a coffee cup to tell a bigger story. In doing so, it captured the excitement of falling in love that language often misses. Turns out my twenties can be summed up quite similarly.
