TOUCHE AMORE streaming new song ‘Displacement’!

1 min read

Following the initial news on their new album and the first song premiere back in June, TOUCHE AMORE are back with yet another new tune from their album ‘Stage Four’! Stereogum magazine, who premiered the track, commented:

“Displacement” in particular has echoes of “In Heaven,” as both songs explore what happens when the person you loved believed in a higher power, but you can’t take the same leap of faith to believe in a god that would cause such pain. Michelle Zauner rendered that disconnect into gauzy indie-pop, while Bolm opts for tempered aggression. “You died at 69 with a body full of cancer,” he starts off. “I asked your god, ‘How could you?’/ But never heard an answer.”
“The word ‘Displacement’ in Greek is Metastasis, which is the term used when cancer has spread from one organ to another. Having “dis” in the title felt like a good head nod to Discharge, Disfear, Disclose, etc. as this song has a strong D-beat presence,” Bolm explains of the song’s origins. “Most of my lyrics are autobiographical, but this one feels more like stating facts than word play. It touches on my faith or lack thereof in the afterlife. How for her sake I want to believe in heaven because it’s what she deserves.”
