Embodying the chaotic raw energy synonymous with Hideous Sun Demon’s signature blend of psych-punk rock,‘Can’t Live Like That’ is a raw, catchy and explosive, full of twists and turns bound to hypnotize and make you bop tothe uplifting chorus hooks. The relentless pace is set by the synced rhythm section of Jake Suriano and Andrew Blackman as the band begins to launch into full flight. Vincent Buchanan-Simpsons’s unique voice begins to command the song as he unloads a somewhat familiar lyrical narrative reflecting on current life events. “Musically our new music is a result of experimenting with different influences. Vincent demoed some of the songs at home, so they came from a more stylistically unified beginning. Some of the drum parts are a bit dancier, we recycled and rerecorded some old songs and took advantage of Vin's synth know how, to play with some Devo/Nerd punk influences. Over all we wanted to take a more melodic approach as we have, we'll & truly done the riff rock thing.” –Hideous Sun Demon.
