This is “Lemonade,” another standout from Sun Machine, the forthcoming album from Rubblebucket. It’s their first record for Grand Jury, and a bittersweet work of art. The Brooklyn duo of Alex Toth and Kalmia Traver ended their long-time romantic relationship, but didn’t end their songwriting partnership. The album deftly documents that pain while remaining an often-euphoric celebration of the lasting connection between the duo.
“Lemonade” was written by Toth who notes, “As the lyrics came together I realized I was kind of writing the song from Kal’s perspective, singing to me. I didn’t know what project the song was for (my solo record, a friend’s band, a pop star?) but when Kal and I realized Rubblebucket wasn’t ending with our breakup, but gaining new life, this song made perfect sense.”
Tickets are available now for the first leg of dates in support of the album, which is available for pre-order in the shop now.
