Today, Los Angeles-based alternative post-rock band, Convey, released their brand new single, “Nutrition.” This is the third single off the band’s debut LP on Revival Recordings following “Terror” and “Inside Out” which were released in 2018. Convey also released an accompanying lyric video for the single which can be viewed on the band’s YouTube channel.
When discussing the ideas behind the track, vocalist Ben Cohen stated, “Nutrition is a song written under pressure and I think it shows in the best way. There’s an immediacy and a rawness to the track that makes it a special song on the album. It was the last song written for the record and the quickest one to track. Under pressure of time there really wasn’t much room for second guessing or editing, so when it came to my part, the lyrics have a lot of imagery that we were consuming daily in our city. Always easiest to write about something you know.”
Convey pride themselves on putting their own spin on rock music that feels familiar but also looks toward the future of the genre. Having self-released an EP in the Fall of 2016 and their viral video hit “Speed Dial”, Convey has remained largely hidden for the past year, incubating ideas, fleshing them out, and not settling until the grooves cut as deep as the vocals soar. Producer Jim Kaufman (Atlas Genius, Night Riots, Anti-Flag) has helped graft their appreciation for legendary acts like Led Zeppelin and Tool to a living love of Queens of the Stone Age and Circa Survive which has yielded their debut LP City of Skin and Bone set to be released on Revival Recordings in early 2019. Convey has seen early success being played in rotation on KROQ and they were voted by fans and listeners to participate in the inaugural KROQ Locals Only Fest on March 9th with The Wrecks and Dear Boy.
