Published Mar 27, 2018Continuing a trend we started with last year's "Choose" video, we're once again delivering the first taste of new music from Detroit rockers Undesirable People with the video for "I Saw a Dove," the closing track of forthcoming release Ask Me If I Care.
The EP will be self-released on April 20, and if the song from which it nicked its name is any indication, it'll be a diverse six tracks. Kicking off with crooning and tender guitar plucking, it reaches emo-esque territory before the frantic punk outro with its incessant repeating "ask me if I care." Oh, and that's in under two minutes, with the remainder of the clip being comprised of a noisy fade-out.
"'I Saw a Dove' was written directly after the passing of my grandmother," says vocalist/bassist Mark Lebiecki. "Surprisingly enough, the happenings inside of the song are real. It's an actual play-by-play of a moment I experienced a few days after her funeral that lead to me to many mixed emotions. It was certainly a goal of ours to make sure that was captured musically as well. With intentions of being the opening track on Ask Me If I Care, it ended up appropriately becoming the closer.
"For the video, with the help of Ray Rivard, I think we found a way to visually represent a feeling of fear inside of growing older. In what instance do we stop celebrating life & living and replace that with counting down the years that remain? We'll leave that up to you."
