Algiers have shared the third single, “I Can’t Stand It”, off their upcoming album “Shook” out February 24th via Matador.
The single features Samuel T Herring from Future Islands and Jar Matthews from Boy Harsher.
Franklin James Fisher shared this in a press release: “It’s a very personal song about a devastating loss of someone I believed to be the love of my life which nearly ended in my suicide. I think the song’s narrative arc reflects the sense of dread and the path that led me to that moment. She put on ‘What You Don’t Want Me to Be’ the first time I heard it and I knew immediately that I was going to sample it—I just couldn’t have known the result would be a song about our own end. But every time I sing that song now it feels like I heal a little bit more.”
Jae Matthews had this to share: “I wanted to give Algiers not so much a narrative, but a recollection of a feeling. That abstract evocation that comes when you think about someone who broke yr heart and how that pain still tethers you.”
Algiers will be touring in support of the album starting March with SXSW, so go and do yourself a favor and catch them live, you will not be disappointed.
