LISTEN TO THE NEW SINGLE FROM THE BETHS CALLED ‘I’M NOT GETTING EXCITED’

May 12, 2020 9:48 am

The second single off of The Beths’ forthcoming album ‘Jump Rope Gazers’ is out today! Listen to ‘I’m Not Getting Excited’ and watch the accompanying music video that was filmed entirely in isolation and includes some spooky stop-motion animation.

Liz Stokes explains the imposter syndrome that inspired the lyrics of the song:

People always ask ‘are you excited!?’ and it’s a fair question, because exciting things do happen to us sometimes,” says Elizabeth Stokes. “Support slots, overseas tours, music releases. Stuff we’ve dreamed about for years. So the correct answer is always ‘yes.’ But the truth is that deep down there’s a tiny Liz saying, ‘don’t get excited.’ She is certain that anything good that could happen will most likely not happen, because of a freak accident. Or because somebody finally realises that we aren’t worthy, shouts ‘phony!’ and takes everything away. I wrote ‘I’m Not Getting Excited’ last year, well before everything really did get taken away. From everyone. It feels like the song has a new context, but we don’t know what it is yet. And now we all share a blurry, uncertain future.
