Perfect for a gloomy, sullen Monday, Elvis Depressedly, the alter ego of Mat Cothran (Coma Cinema & Gremlins) has just released a new track, “Pepi/Coke Suicide.” The track can be found on Elvis Depressedly‘s upcoming EP, “Holo Pleasures” due out April 16th via Birdtapes.
If you want insight into the intensity behind Cothran’s chilling, beautiful, raw, and well, depressing Elliott Smith-meets-Conor Oberst sound, there’s an interview with him on Shuffle from 2012. Here, Cothran addresses the inspiration behind the creation of Mickey’s Dead:
“In life there is this wild desire to be emotional. You go through life thinking what you feel means something when it truly doesn’t, but if you don’t let it out it tears you into pieces and makes you useless.”
