๐ŸŽธ๐Ÿ”ฅ “Sport of Form”: The Armed’s New Melodic Rebellion from Upcoming Album “Perfect Saviours”

The Detroit-based experimental pop band, The Armed, cranks up the hype for their forthcoming album, “Perfect Saviours,” by dropping a new single, “Sport of Form.” Vocalist Tony Wolski proclaims the album represents an earnest pursuit to craft the ultimate rock album of the 21st century. Big claim? Let’s see! With collaborators like Sarah Tudzin, Mark Guiliana, Patrick Shiroishi, Justin Meldal-Johnsen, and Julien Baker, things are looking pretty promising. Their latest single explores the contrasting ideas of “winning” and “playing” in life – a delightful aural whiplash. ๐Ÿ”Š๐Ÿค”

Enter The Armed: a collection of artists from Detroit who’re not just about to shake up your music playlist but maybe even how you view the world ๐ŸŒ! With their last successful album, ULTRAPOP, still causing reverberations, they’re now gearing up to release “Perfect Saviours,” promising nothing less than the zenith of rock music this century! ๐Ÿ’ฟ๐ŸŽธ

Is this audacious or brilliant? ๐Ÿคจ Maybe both. Tony Wolski, the band’s vocalist, shares some deep thoughts on the new album, stating that it’s an “unironic, sincere effort to create the biggest, greatest rock album of the 21st century.” Hey, they’ve got lofty ambitions, but can they pull it off? ๐ŸŽฏ

Their latest single, “Sport of Form,” takes listeners on a sonic journey of cognitive dissonance, oscillating between beauty and ugliness, severity and tenderness, obscenity and grace. The band’s got a profound analogy here. They reckon life is more like a ‘sport of form’ such as diving or figure skating, an activity with evolving standards and subjectivity, rather than a ‘sport of measure’ like basketball or soccer, which is essentially binary. It’s about the human instinct to win, even when we’re not really playing a game. Sounds deep, right? But doesn’t that pretty much sum up life? ๐ŸŠโ€โ™€๏ธโ›น๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ

But here’s where things get a bit trippy. “Lyrically, this song is about the human need to win a game that we’re not even actually playing,” Tony muses. So, are we winners, losers, or just players in the game of life? ๐ŸŽฎ

Guest appearances on this album are something to look forward to. With Sarah Tudzin, Mark Guiliana, Patrick Shiroishi, Justin Meldal-Johnsen, and Julien Baker pitching in, it’s gonna be a riveting mix of influences. ๐Ÿ’ซ

In this crazy, confounding, yet beautiful world, could this album be the perfect saviour we all need? Could this cacophony of beauty and ugliness, severity and tenderness, obscenity and grace, be the soundtrack of our lives? That’s for you to decide! ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ

And with that, we leave you with a question: In a world obsessed with scores and victories, could shifting our perspective to view life as a ‘sport of form’ lead to a more fulfilling existence? ๐ŸŽญ Or is the human instinct to win too deeply ingrained? What game are you playing? ๐Ÿ•น๏ธ
