To Laugh 05:27
If there is a god, it’s a miserable wreck like me. Life is its sad song. This world is its grief. If every move I’ve made has led me here, Then everything I’ve done has been wrong. I have no choice now but to laugh. I just have to laugh. I just have to laugh. I just have to laugh. If there is a god, it likes a grim joke. Breathes us to life, then laughs until it chokes. Every kiss I gave you led me here. Forever but so briefly tasted. Was everything wasted? Was everything wasted? Was all of it wasted? Was everything wasted? I have no choice now but to laugh. I just have to laugh. I just have to laugh I just have to laugh laugh laugh.


Beautifully delving into the disillusion of life, Austin-based shoegaze ensemble Single Lash wryly commiserates on the futility of existence with their latest single “To Laugh.” Featuring members of Future Museums and Thousand Foot Whale Claw, Single Lash’s drab cynicism is met by their signature wall of effects-drenched guitar and luscious synthesizers, giving this track both tonal and conceptual complexity.

While the straightforward, disheartened lyrics take spotlight, Single Lash orchestrates a wide range of instrumentation including organ, violin and 12-string acoustic guitar to reveal nuanced and reflective shades of emotion. As they continue to evolve aesthetically as a musical unit, Single Lash divulges an elegant self-critique on their highly personal new piece “To Laugh.”
