Sorority Noise has been pumping out singles off their upcoming four track EP ‘It Kindly Stopped For Me,’ out 4/22. Sorority Noise released ‘Either Way’ first through DIY and I immediately connected with the track. Cameron Boucher, frontman, spoke about the song’s backstory to DIY:
“I wrote this song in our van outside of Chain Reaction in Anaheim, CA,” explains frontman Cam Boucher. “I had found out I lost another friend a few days previous and was having a difficult time thinking about how I had made positive strides in dealing with my mental health, but hadn’t been able to help friends around me that I didn’t know we’re suffering from the same thing.”
Listen here to the soft, heavily emotional song here via DIY.
Recently, Sorority Noise also released ‘XC,’ the last song off the EP. Listen below. ‘XC’ is louder and more emphatic. Boucher told The Fader:
“I do a lot of driving when we’re on tour, probably about 85 percent of it, because it keeps my mind distracted and I get motion sick,” Boucher explained to The Fader. “I was doing an overnight drive this fall and was thinking about my friend who had taken his life this summer, about how quickly death can come, and kinda just wrote this song via a voice memo, just talking about the lyrics while everyone else slept. My dear friends Olivia and Michi, who have been friends of mine since we were 16, were able to sing on this song with me and I am so incredibly grateful for that.”
Personally, I prefer 'Either Way' but I'm very excited for the EP, plus I love the art.
