Fire Track: feeble little horse – “Pocket”

| | ,

Pittsburgh quartet feeble little horse release “Pocket,” the wild and wonderfully mystifying new single from their anticipated upcoming album, Girl with Fish, out June 9th via Saddle Creek.

“For me ‘Pocket’ was a song about being single and not knowing what to do with myself,” Lydia Slocum explains. “I got in the habit of showing someone affection and I liked it but then that ended and I just had all these kisses and hugs burning a hole in my pocket! I felt locked out often and like I was just stuck haunted by my old love and it felt like a dead man that wouldn’t leave me alone because the thoughts of it were so intrusive and repetitive.”

“‘Pocket’ had many different iterations but started as a straight Lydia song. We tried over and over to get it to its final form but I’m very happy with what we ended up with,” says Ryan Walchonski, with Jake Kelley adding that “the drums were super fun to record and the song itself is super weird in the coolest ways.” And in staying true to the band’s unpredictable spirit, Sebastian Kinsler says “right now our problem is I wrote and recorded the guitars while on post-surgery painkillers so we have no idea how to play it live.”
