“I spent months trying to scan all
these images & letters, most covered with ocean dirt, and in doing
so discovered what people often find in their family’s past: that they
are a hell of a lot like those who’d come before,” says Kolenik. The
chorus of standout “Boys Life” echoes this sentiment with the refrain
“pictures of youth/picturing you,” over a track that itself was an old
demo re-discovered by accident by the band, during a late night jam
session at a cabin in Upstate NY.
