ALL HAIL! Norma Jean have released another song from their new album, All Hail! It’s called “/with_errors,” making it the second track we’ve heard from the album to feature unusual punctuation, after “[Mind Over Mind].” In this case, the unnecessary characters indicate computer code. Although the song’s lyrics don’t say anything about computers. Or maybe they do? Honestly, shit’s pretty open to interpretation:
No need for dirt, I’m already still
I outweigh the orbit, I’ve
Never been around the sun
Always beside it
The burn is a reaction
Repeat the strokes that will bring the
Water to my neck, the tears over my head
Also, the single art has a sleepy-looking wolf in a washing machine.
So I guess I’m not entirely clear on what this song is about.
BUT… whatever because it’s way cool. It’s relatively slow and low-energy by Norma Jean standards, although it will definitely still scare the bloomers off your grandma. It’s got a lot of chunk, groove, and chunky groove, and those are all good things IMO.
Listen to “/with_errors” below, then head to the comments section to share your interpretation of the song’s lyrics. Remember, it’s art, so there are no wrong answers!
