As It Is have released a brand new song, IDGAF, a glorious taster of what’s to come from the band as they begin a new era.
The track is an anthemic, emotional battle cry for the times we’ve all been living in since Covid put the world in lockdown.
“‘IDGAF was the first thing we created that made us feel anything,” the band reveals. “It harnesses so many feelings that we’ve all been experiencing, so if you’re anxious, heartbroken, pissed off, and wanna give the fuck up, turn the volume up. The raw attitude and energy of this track ended up defining the direction of the rest of this record. This is As It Is — unsettled, unhinged, and unboxed.”
With The Great Depression, the band delved into brave new territory conceptually and also took a sonic leap forward. The band also reimagined the entire album and released the songs as a series of four EPs in 2019.
“We started writing the next chapter of As It Is in 2019,” the band shares. “We had written a lot of cool songs but none of them were telling our story or communicating how we were actually feeling. When IDGAF happened, it was the first thing that incapsulated the heartbreak, defeat, and disappointment we were feeling with ourselves and the world around us. When the pandemic happened and the world shut down, that’s when we really spiralled. We’re unwell and we have been. IDGAF is all in the title. It’s for all of us and it’s yours now.”
