New York's PWR BTTM--the duo of Ben Hopkins and Liv Bruce--shared a new single as well as upcoming tour dates this week. The new single, "Projection" follows PWR BTTM's full length album Ugly Cherries from last fall. Regarding "Projection", the band's Ben Hopkins shared the following:
Projection' is a song about feeling unqualified to be the way you see yourself because of the way other people see you, and how other people's perception of your identity can warp your sense of self. It's about being exhausted with the pressure of fitting in and throwing a shiny, glorious middle finger to those who doubt you.
Along with the release of "Projection", PWR BTTM shared new tour dates. View them below.
