Los Angeles punk-leaning four-piece Reckling — led by vocalist/songwriter Kelsey Reckling and rounded out by a number of LA rock alum, including drummer Max Keuhn (FIDLAR), guitarist Erik Jimenez (Together Pangea), and bassist Joey Mullen (Paramore/HalfNoise) — is back a brand new EP entitled Human Nature today. To celebrate, the band shares the EP’s focus track, “Spitter”.
“Each song on the EP encompasses a different feeling that I think everyone can relate to or identify with… it’s human nature. ‘Spitter’ is literally about a girl spitting on me because she didn’t like me, but more generally, it’s about persevering through the difficult things in life. The song sorts through my own angry feelings that were brought on by somebody else’s misdirected emotions,” says Kelsey.
“The underlying themes in this EP move through feelings of indecision, guilt, and regret…but writing and playing the songs are a way of finding resolution, forgiveness, and surrender.”
