The Well By Briscoe Shows A Generation In Despair — Oliver Anthony’s bitter lament Rich Men North of Richmond was a surprise mega-hit a few weeks back and now another song of American despair is on radar.
Texas-based Briscoe released The Well in June to promote their album West of It All which is coming out Sept. 15.
It’s not what one would call optimistic.
It opens “When the well runs dry and the food runs out and the words you speak are the only things that touch your mouth.”
We, however, are optimistic.
We liked it and think it’s going to be a success.
Oliver Anthony is young and the Briscoe band members are younger. The upside to the garbage being fed this generation by those who wish us to eat bugs and live in coffins is that when you see the problem and start singing about the problem, the problem becomes solvable.
And yes, men and women are different and have different roles.
Believe in God and you’ll believe in the glory of living. Fear will disappear to be replaced by hope, and bitterness will become love.
Here’s the song:
