They shared their first track 'My Dad's Blue Motion' back in May, and now T-Shirt Weather are back with a new cut, 'Scratches', also from their forthcoming second album, 'Dinner and a Show', out July 20 through Everything Sucks Music.
"‘Scratches’ is a very tongue in cheek song about failing to be honest with yourself and other people," say the Durham-based trio. "It feels very pathetic and futile to write a song about your inane problems although it provides a cathartic rush. Kind of like a joke without a punchline. Musically, this song borrows heavily from the theme from That Thing You Do! written and directed by Tom Hanks in 1996. Only as if the entire cast of that film were replaced by the members of Iron Maiden."
