Brooklyn’s own QWAM have released their new single, IDC, that is taken from their freshest EP, Little Bliss, that is out now on “grapefruit splash” vinyl and digital formats via Montreal’s newest female operated label, Reta Records.

IDC, was written by bassist Eddie Kuspiel before bringing it to the band. It is the first song to have verses sung by members other than Felicia. Eddie, who wrote the first verse and choruses says, “I wrote this when I was pretty apathetic about everything and hadn’t been upset or genuinely excited about anything in a while. It annoyed me because I don’t like to play anything cool and it felt like the world was on fire on a large scale and a small scale but I was indifferent. So I tried to write about things that did make me mad, like environmental depletion and my knees hurting because I’m getting old.” Guitarist Matt Keim says, “My verse just piggy-backs on the idea that Eddie already had. I even stole his first lyric. It’s all very literal. I’ll bike anywhere regardless of the weather, and I was mooning over boys ordering coffee at my workplace and screwing up their orders. Come to think of it, I was probably responding to Eddie’s indifference with the tiniest bit of fuck you determination...”

The b-side, Little Bliss, has lyrics by frontwoman Felicia Lobo. “…It is about the dull ache for something more. Sometimes we have these seasons where every day starts to feel the same. Every subway ride. Every workshift. Even every show. So you have to find little bits of magic in the everyday...”
