Song Premiere: Iration – “2GÜD2BTRÜ”

May 18th, Iration will begin their summer tour with Dirty Heads, The Movement and Pacific Dub. They will also release their 5th studio record, a self-titled release with 17 brand-new songs and we’re honored to have the first official leak of their new song “2GÜD2BTRÜ.”

One of our favorite songs on the record is the oddly spelled “2GÜD2BTRÜ,” pronounced “Too Good To Be True.” Guitarist Micah Brown tells The Pier: “I think we were just feeling real cheeky one day in the studio, and at one point our engineer asked us what the song title was going to be, and we started to get creative with the spelling, and after a lengthy discussion of the use of umlauts, we decided to go with it.”

It’s a progressively sounding Iration song with a pop surface and bouncy reggae foundation topped with melodic vocals. The song smells like sunscreen, ocean breeze and palm trees. The bassline is especially fun to follow around the beat and jumping keys. It’s a fun song, its fun to listen to and I’m sure it’s fun for the guys to play. The song itself is a tribute to the supportive women in their lives.

Micah goes on to tell The Pier: “‘2GÜD2BTRÜ’, to me, is an anthem for the wonderful women in our lives who sacrifice so much quality time and togetherness in support of our journey. Musically, it’s anthemic as well, kind of a feel-good, nostalgic, throwback singalong. It’s a personal song about the challenges of maintaining a healthy relationship while balancing life on the road. You always want to ‘be there’ for your loved ones, even if you can’t physically be there, and we are blessed to have found such strong, supportive partners who understand and embrace the path we’ve chosen.”

The album includes 17 tracks with guest appearances by Kyle McDonald of Slightly Stoopid, J Boog and Tyrone’s Jacket.
