New Jersey-based Punk band Pollyanna have released their latest single “Pathetic”, which shows a “softer side” to the band, including more acoustic elements, following previous high-energy tracks “SLUT” and “Mars”. “Pathetic” is the latest from the Pollyanna’s forthcoming album Slimeset to be released on June 17th via I Surrender Records

Vocalist Jill Beckett (she / they) shares: 

‘Pathetic’ was written during a time of utter and complete weakness, feeling completely beaten down from the thought of loving someone who never wanted you and will never want you. I wrote this song about a person who I had only met two or three times and talked to for such a short period of time, but fell completely in love with the idea of them I had created in my head. I kept waiting and waiting because I was being led on and lied to, but truthfully I knew that this person would never come around. So I wrote a song about being in a never ending cycle of loving the idea of someone who you don’t even know and there is absolutely nothing you can do about it.

Fans will be seeing new songs live later this year as Pollyanna hits the road with Forever Came Calling. Pollyana embraces sounds of Power-Pop, loud Rock, Bubble Grunge, and Punk influences and derive their name from the dictionary definition, “to be unreasonably or illogically optimistic”.
