Wooden Wand has shared another single off his upcoming album, Clipper Ship.
Of School’s Out, James Jackson Toth says it “uses summer vacation as a metaphor for a lifetime spent on Earth: existence as a brief event occurring between one unknown darkness (the end of one school year, birth) and another (the beginning of a new school year, death). Present throughout are the themes that run through the rest of the album: sacrifice, accountability, and the preciousness of time.”
It is yet another fine example of his beautifully contemplative and bittersweet songwriting. An absolute gem.
