Following their return at the end of May As It Is have today released two brand new singles, ‘ILY, HOW ARE YOU?’ and ‘IDC, I CAN’T TAKE IT’. The double single release is a ‘call and response’ pairing, with the band having written songs back to back, with each delivering opposite perspectives.
On the songs, the band share, “‘ILY, HOW ARE YOU?’ is a ‘check in’ anthem. It’s for everybody waking up and going through your day telling everybody you’re great, when you’re not. It’s still okay not to be okay. Check in on your friends.” While, “‘IDC, I CAN’T TAKE IT is a ‘fuck you’ party anthem. It’s for everybody going out of their way and caring the most but not getting the same in return. Some people won’t appreciate your presence until they feel the weight of your absence and that’s okay. Don’t let anyone take your peace. Let go, move on, and put yourself out of your own misery. It’s liberating.”
