Eccentric Art-Pop Veterans SPARKS Reveal New Baleful Track ‘I’M TOAST’ From Their Upcoming 24th Album…

New sonic impulses

12 March 2020

Los Angeles eccentric art-synth-pop brothers SPARKS started their career way back
in 1967 (!) and they’re still alive and kicking today, aging in style with compelling music.
In May they will unleash their 24th (!) album called ‘A STEADY DRIP, DRIP, DRIP’. Last month they dropped twinkling lead-single Self-Effacing. Today we can enjoy another
new piece.

‘I’M TOAST’ sounds pretty upbeat but is actually a doom and gloom reflection on our troubled times as one of the famous brothers, keyboard player/songwriter Ron Mael
told Rolling Stone Magazine : “One tries to be uplifting in one’s songs, but occasionally
a cloud appears in the sky and one’s demeanor leads to songs like ‘I’m Toast.”

These lyrics are crystal clear: “I’m toast/ There’s something burning/ I’m toast/ I’m finally learning/ I’m toast/ Nothing stays the same as it was.”

Get burned here…
