One year after Odds And Ends, American Boston-based band Pile announced the release of a new album. Green and Gray is out on May 3rd via Exploding In Sound. We already shared “Bruxist Grin“; “The Soft Hands of Stephen Miller“is a new excerpt. Watch the official video directed by William Hart.
“The song is about the advisor to the president,” frontman Maguire explains. “Usually, it’s difficult for me to concentrate much vitriol on one person, especially one I don’t know personally, but Stephen Miller is the exception. I’ve had similar sentiments regarding our president but I can relate to him less than I can Stephen Miller, who is my age. On my better days, the idea of the president just saddens me because I know he’s profoundly confused and damaged beyond repair, but Stephen Miller is a different brand of smug racist. I could imagine him being on my bus in high school, and that, I think, brings to light a different but related set of complicated emotions.”
