On Today’s Jam of the Day, “Body of Work,” the second single from The Mynabirds’ upcoming album, GENERALS, percussion is a main character, taking center stage again after its original work in the lead single, “Generals.” However, while the latter is a drumming battle cry, this new track contains a steady global beat that’s as optimistic as the song’s lyrics.
Vocalist Laura Burhenn explains that the track represents our ability to constantly remodel our lives into anything we want, regardless of what the past holds: “We are living things, bodies of work to edit.”
“You are a body of work… You are electric… You are not a dead end… You are a living thing.”
Catch The Mynabirds live in Saint Louis at The Firebird on July 1st. Tickets are available here.
The new album, GENERALS, is out June 5th on Saddle Creek. Pre-order it here.
