It may have only been two years since Atlanta’s Microwave released its debut record Stovall, but a lot has changed since then. While the exuberance and joy of Stovall dealt with vocalist/guitarist Nathan Hardy’s wide-eyed wonder at a world previously obscured by a strict religious upbringing, their new album Much Love details the aftermath once the excitement of experimentation is dampened by the harsh realities of life.
Much Love comes out this Friday and is currently available to pre-order at mcrwv.com.
The above playlist includes the music video for their song “Vomit.” Filmed over the course of eight days throughout Atlanta and parts of rural Georgia by Kyle Thrash (Modern Baseball, The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die, Tiny Moving Parts), the video for “Vomit” portrays people from various walks of life and calls attention to the varied things that they do to cope with the mess the world gives them.
The video’s emotional intensity serves as a contrasting visual accompaniment to the song itself, written by Nathan about his overall disenchantment with intimate relationships, friendships and religion.
