Build Us Fiction‘s ‘Settlers’ is taken from the band’s debut EP The Year Of Steinbeck.
The track begins with hypnotic beats and impassioned indie rock vocals akin to Modest Mouse‘s Isaac Brock. The melody is serious and captivating but there’s a joyful message here too:
“‘Settlers’ is about dreaming about a simple life and minimizing the worries that people go through everyday. It’s about being aware of what you have, who you love and care for, and how you want to grow as a person. This song is an attempt to capture the energy of being completely excited.”
I highly recommend you check out the band’s debut EP right now, it’s absolutely fantastic – tracks like ‘The Year Of Steinbeck’ and ‘Partial Lung’ are sure to become fast favourites.
