“Nine Volt Love is a song about our fucked up parents, they did this sick thing where they’d stick nine volt batteries up their asses cause they hated each other so much, and thought this could save their awful marriage, I guess it worked cause they ran off somewhere together when I was 12”— Nancy Dew, Lead singer on “Nive Volt Love”
