Single: Psychic Shakes – Wage Slave

Another single I am sharing from fuzzy bedroom rock Psychic Shakes from UK.

Here is a little story about the song:

“Wage Slave is a fairly straightforward, lighthearted song, and it was one of the few times I’ve ever written lyrics and a vocal melody before anything else. I wrote it after leaving a job as a ‘grill chef’ for a small burger restaurant in Brighton. I was working there during my first year of University. I used to come home from work and smell so awful my girlfriend wouldn’t want to sit near me, I smelled like sweat and oil, it was hilarious. I’ve done so many crappy jobs trying to make ends meet- one highlight was power washing bird shit off a veranda in the rain, when I was a dishwasher at another restaurant. While you’re working in those sorts of jobs all you can think about is the future and what you’re going to do when your shift finishes. When the future comes, and you don’t smell terrible, you can finally laugh about it.”
