about

The Daily Pravda have always worn their influences on their collective sleeve. When you so expertly weave an elaborate musical tapestry from the best material, why not show off a little? Show off they do. “Take It” is downright majestic. The hint of tremolo. The slide guitar. The melodic bass and locked-in drums. All spot on. That’s just the intro. The verses build with a “Kashmir”-like haunting. The tension is palpable before flooding the chorus with saturated chords and a triumphant melody. Knowing there’s going to be a big payoff doesn’t make the outcome any less rewarding. It’s glorious, ready to take on all late night singalongs. The Daily Pravda have put out a bunch of great singles recently. This may be their best. The future is not boring.

lyrics

We'll rule the skies, you and I
We pass by every night, then we’re diverted
Betting dogs on Woodward Ave
The saints of Detroit know how we’re perverted

You're just a drunk drive away
My Beamer's stuffed with your stuff
Ikea-made furniture, all our lives

My mother hovers, my dad’s
Resigned to life in the grave
They left me nothing to save

But you can take it
Show you’re strong enough
If you’re not - well I’ve waited long enough
Come on take it, take what’s only yours, and pull me through the doors
Why we always starting to stop?

I walk the line, I know you’re just
An insect reveling in the headlights
I’m not the one who set the stars
If you blame me for that, then you’ve learned nothing

You can’t imagine the fear
When doctors tell me I’m fine
When only cocaine and wine sustain me

I run for miles in my sleep
Down dark and dangerous roads
To push you till you explode

Until you take it
And show you’re strong enough
If you’re not, well I’ve waited long enough
Come on take it, take what’s only yours, and pull me through the doors
Why we always starting to stop?

It goes like this for sixty odd years: sneaking off, Boston to New York, one time in France, one time in LA, and anyway, we’re down, down, now. Tickets to a canceled show, bringing lies and disease home. the future is boring, the future is boring. Here’s tickets to a canceled show, bringing lies and disease home. the future is boring, the future is…

Come on take it
Show you’re strong enough
If you’re not, well I’ve waited long enough
Come on take it, take what’s only yours, and pull me through the doors
Why we always starting to stop?
