The Story So Far and Elder Brother’sKevin Geyer has premiered the latest single “Stuck In A Hole” from his new solo project, Same Side. “’Stuck In A Hole’ is a song about feeling just that. Especially at a time like this, I’m sure most people know the feeling” shares Geyer. “The lyrics were written without any particular aim, but I think they turned out to be somewhat of a self-reflection”.
“Stuck In A Hole” will be featured on Same Side’s self-titled debut EP, due out on May 29th via Pure Noise Records. The five-song collection was recorded at The Panda Studios in Fremont, California, with longtime The Story So Far and Elder Brother producer Sam Pura, whose resumé also includes State Champs and Hundredth.

With his penchant for uncovering buried feelings of melancholy and yearning, often weaving and conjuring in isolation in a stream of consciousness style flow, Geyer’s Same Side alter-ego is the perfect repository for unflinchingly intimate minimalism with depth, vibrancy, and earnestness. While poetic themes of loss and reflection will no doubt resonate with anyone going through a bad breakup, the five songs that comprise the“Same Side” EP soar with a dreamy melodic optimism. “I’ve always gravitated toward the mellower stuff”Kevin says of his songwriting. “As I’ve gotten a little bit older and my musical tastes have expanded, this is what comes out naturally for me. I love what we do in The Story So Far and how it’s evolved. This is another outlet, a chance to explore a different side of me”.
