Swedish alternative country band Gravy Train returns with “Monday”, an ambiguous track that leaves room for interpretation. With a mixture of dynamism and expressiveness, the song reminds of the style of artists like Turnpike Troubadours.
Speaking on the song’s ambiguity, the band’s leader, Jonas Frykman, relays, “This song could be both a love song and a song about addiction. It’s up to the listener”. About the band’s recent lyrical style, Frykman describes, “Ambiguous lyrics about love or addiction have become our trademark”.
Recorded in Stigbergsstudion in Gothenburg earlier this year, the band enlisted the help of producer Petter Lithvall and violinist Alice Thorsell to collaborate with the recording.
Gravy Train released their first singles on Spotify in 2019, continuing with more songs in 2020 and the single “A Brand New Day” earlier this year.
The band got signed to Gothenburg-based Rexius Records in 2021. They’re now preparing for the release of “Monday” on August 26th.
