The news brings with it a new song called “Tried To Tell You”, which Lindeman says is “reaching out to someone; a specific person, or maybe every person, who is tamping down their wildest and most passionate self in service of some self (and world?) destructive order.”
“Tried To Tell You” finds The Weather Station adopting a similarly gliding and aerodynamic indie rock sound as “Robber”, with layers of strings and organ whooshing in and out around Lindeman’s central guitar and voice. This time though, it’s almost emotionally the inverse, with Lindeman reaching out for someone she cares about, trying to open their eyes to a bigger truth about the sorry state of the world around them. There’s plenty of care and affection in her voice, which sails beautifully alongside the surging sounds of Lindeman and her collaborators – guiding right into your mind.
The video for “Tried To Tell You” is once again directed by Lindeman herself, take a look below.
