The Districts release their first tune since A Flourish and a Spoil in 2015, possibly one of their most expressive songs to date.

Millennials, in my opinion, were born to adapt. We have no choice; everything has changed so rapidly since the nineties and now that we are in our twenties, we are faced with a building wave of confusion. This song, written by fellow millennials, is the sound of crashing realization, a moment of perspective: A “What the fuck happened?!” uttered at the end of a weird year.

The Districts’ very own Rob Grote commented:
“‘Ordinary Day’ deals with a sort of personal alienation and the realization that you and the world you’ve existed in have changed. Sort of the feeling of coming through a tunnel and having no way of relating to things in the same way as before. It was written in late summer/early fall and came together quite naturally… Personal lives were in flux and we were sitting around Philly losing our minds.”

This feeling is something that people don’t always think they should admit, but I think it’s a healthy conversation starter. As you listen to the rusty wail of the electric guitar, the raw “well-oiled machine” that is The Districts, you may remember the last time you fell down in what resembled “a garden full of bees.” Take a deep breath in knowing you made it out alive, on to the next one! Cheers.
