LAURA JANE GRACE – ” Day Old Coffee “

Posted: December 4, 2021 in MUSIC

A couple months ago, Laura Jane Grace released the EP “At War with the Silverfish“. It contained a jammy little number called “Day Old Coffee” that captured the anxiety, restlessness, and mundanity of coffee consumption. “Day old coffee microwaved to boiling / Pour it on my eyeballs and boil my dumb-shit brains out,” she sings on the opening verse. Honestly, a very relatable stance when you’re frustrated with just about anything—a creative block, the Wi-Fi going out, the world.

This is the worst song I’ve ever written but the video turned out really good,” Grace says of the charming (and highly caffeinated) clip filmed by directors Chris Bauer and Richard Louis Ulrich. Watch the frenzied music video below. 

The follow-up to Laura’s critically acclaimed solo album “Stay Alive” was mixed by her Devouring Mothers bandmate Marc Hudson, and half recorded at her TinyQuietStudio in Chicago, IL and half at Electric Eel in St. Louis, MO. At War With The Silverfish finds our heroine in a range of stripped-back, poignant modes that amount to an honest and holistic account of our shared humanity. 

We get the video for “Day Old Coffee,” which finds Grace performing to an audience of a dozen coffee mugs and her microwave. She paces around an empty room and writes in her notebook. It’s a charming video directed by Chris Bauer and Richard Louis Ulrich. Grace commented on the visual saying, “This is the worst song I’ve ever written but the video turned out really good.”
