Been Stellar – “All In One” [Video]

| |

Been Stellar have released another new song from their forthcoming debut titled, “All In One.” The track is a ferocious late-album highlight that sees band member Laila Wayans’ powerful, tectonic drumming coming to the fore. It’s a song about finding universal understandings through the prism of mundane work life. Lyrically the song is raw and elusive sounding like truths issued from a state of half-sleep: “I know/And you know/That we’re built to last/Not to grow.” 

The band recently announced their highly anticipated debut album, Scream from New York, NY, out June 14th via their new label home Dirty Hit. After sharing lead single “Passing Judgment,” Been Stellar have spent the past month on a major European tour supporting The 1975 and will resume touring on May 4th, playing Shaky Knees Festival in Atlanta, GA, touring the UK and returning to the states for their newly announced slot on Lollapalooza

Been Stellar on “All In One”
“In many ways this song and its lyrics are at the album’s heart. I think it’s the culmination of a point we’ve been trying to make for years. The lyrics grapple with processing the mundane daily tasks we all carry out, and how they connect to understanding our lives in a larger sense. So much of life in a condensed city like New York is spent in a very small box- we wanted the video to portray the madness that comes from that experience. The themes of solipsism and existential uncertainty we brought up on our EP feel tied up with this song. The music feels like a creative conclusion for us as well— like the kind of song we’ve been working towards for years. We finished it in the final weeks leading up to recording and couldn’t be more proud of how it came out.”
