Chief State Release 'Reprise'

February 29, 2020

Vancouver's very own pop-punk band Chief State released their latest single "Reprise" off their soon to be released LP titled Tough Love via Mutant League Records.

 

Founded in August 2016, this group consists of Fraser SimpsonNik PangChris KavanaghJustin Pham, and Joe Soderholm. These guys have come a long way and it's paying off.

 

"Reprise was written about a situation where I felt like I couldn’t help someone I loved. The metaphor of running round in circles and being trapped in a loop is not only how I felt about this person but subsequently the situation I found myself in recently. It‘s ironic that this song has flipped on me but it has been a tough year personally. I hope it helps others realize that going in circles and expecting different results is never the answer, no matter what the question is." - Frontman Fraser Simpson told Alternative Press

"Reprise" Lyrics:

 

I’ll tread light where you lay,

I should be pushing you away

I’m over always reconciling and compromising

Because you never set the pace.

And I’m so sick of this disdain

I’ve come to realize, despite despising, you’re always going to occupy this space.

Get out of my face.

 

I've been trying to get by

You've been buried in your lies

Always running round in circles

No escaping your reprise.

But you won’t listen

So keep on running round and I’ll keep my distance.

 

Now I've realized

I feel sicker everyday but it gets better when I'm away

Overthinking's what I do when I have nothing left to say.

Why are you always consistent

With your over persistence?

 

I've been trying to get by

You've been buried in your lies

Always running round in circles

No escaping your reprise.

But you won’t listen

So keep on running round and I’ll keep my distance.

 

 

Keep on running round

Keep on running round, I’ll keep my distance.

 

Why are you always consistent

With your over persistence?

I've been trying to get by

You've been buried in your lies

Always running round in circles

No escaping your reprise.

But you won’t listen

So keep on running round and I’ll keep my distance.

"Chief State are a high-energy pop-punk quintet hailing from Vancouver, British Columbia, who are tighter than a rich relative and as positive as your older siblings’ mangled       youth-core records."- Alternative Press
