Garbage Wrestle with ‘Inner Conflict’ on new song ‘Wolves’
Garbage has released the video for his new track ‘Wolves’, the latest single and ‘pop song’ from the band’s upcoming album. Neither gods nor masters.
“This song reminds me of my younger self when there were two sides to me,” Shirley Manson said of “Wolves” in a statement. “I have hurt so many people in my life, both knowingly and unknowingly, I’m sure. But when you’re young and in self-survival mode, just like a baby rattlesnake, you have no idea how strong your venom is. But he has the power to kill.Manson added, “It’s a song about inner conflict. On regret. About duality… This song is an ode to this idea of: Who are you going to be as a person? Are you going to be a force for evil or are you going to try to do good in the world? A song about the struggle that exists within us as humans. “
