L.S. Dunes Share New Single ‘How Dare You’

L.S. Dunes have given us a new song for Valentine’s Day. The band shared their new single “How Dare You,” which is about “pushing yourself beyond your limits and giving your all to something in order to achieve alternate states of consciousness and connection” according to vocalist Anthony Green, and it also “sets the stage for the new era of L.S. Dunes.”

The singer goes on to say:

“The past life is gone and yet it never really was. How Dare You examines the mentality behind what you choose to grab as you’re running out of your burning house. Except the burning house is in the dirt underneath your dentist’s fingernails.

“My parents had just sold the house I grew up in and I had just gotten sober again for the millionth time when I felt like what I imagine people say when they use the phrase ‘born again’. Even though I hadn’t lived there in years, I was still holding onto so much baggage and drama. I used to think my parents had an alarm system at that house connected to the police that would alert them in case we were ever in trouble. I think I told myself this because it brought me comfort. All I would ever see on the news was that people would get robbed, and I thought that was something that happened a lot, but that we were safe from it all because of the silent alarm we didn’t actually have.

“This song became a way for me to examine the transformation I was making into being an adult in this world where I used to view all adults as oppressors of magic. Now I get to be a proponent of its growth and celebrate change and communication.”

Listen to the song below.

L.S. Dunes will play several festivals this year, including Slam Dunk, Rock Im Park, and When We Were Young. See all their dates here.
