Adam Carpenter and Jason Bennett may be 2,000 miles apart, but this LA/Nashville duo doesn’t let distance affect Baseball Game’s music. Incorporating 70s soft rock into their indie tracks, Baseball Game explores nostalgia and empathy to their cores. As their first release of 2020, Baseball Game is bringing us a hazy new single, “Woman.”
On “Woman,” Baseball Game reflected,
“‘Woman’ originated from a demo made last spring. We wanted the song musically to feel like we were in a trance, the same way we felt when watching random YouTube videos of people dancing to slow disco from the 70s without sound.”
Between the gentle plucks and calming synths, “Woman” takes us to a tranquil state of mind where all of our worries have somehow disappeared. Lyrically, “Woman” dives into the concept of fulfillment and pleasure in its simplest form. With this being Baseball Game’s second track ever, we’re more than pleased with this emerging duo.
“Lyrically, it ties into our other songs but with more of a present day perspective on a relationship. It talks about being infatuated with another person that you’re either in a relationship with, or possibly pursuing one. Another take on it would be trying to fill an empty gap and finding a source of excitement/happiness for a moment in time, when you haven’t felt it. Doesn’t necessarily mean we’re talking only of a relational idea. This could be anything that acts as a distraction that you don’t mind being distracted by.”
