Library Card Releases New Song “Cognitive Dissonance”
Rotterdam-based rock band Library Card, consisting of Lot van Teylingen (vocals), Mitchell Quitz (guitar), Kat Kalkman (bass) and Emre Karayalçın (drums), released a new song “Cognitive Dissonance” on October 26, 2023 via AT EASE.
The song is the first single off of their upcoming debut EP, which is expected to be released in 2024.
The track was written by Lot van Teylingen, Mitchell Quitz, Kat Kalkman, and Emre Karayalçın. Produced by Daan Duurland.
The accompanying music video was directed by Kat Kalkman.
The band said of the song, “Existence itself is erratic and inconsistent, life cannot be lived in a flawless manner. We can try as hard as we want to be compassionate, empathetic and accepting of the things we fear but there will always be a part of us flirting with being selfish, jealous or vengeful. To accept this duality is to accept our own humanity.”
- Library Card formed in the summer of 2021, drawing inspiration from Detroit post-punks Protomartyr, cult Glaswegian art-rockers Life Without Buildings and the poetry of Anne Clark - to name but three of their eclectic influences - it's not too far-fetched to suggest that the uncertain period of time in which they formed has intrinsically latched itself to the band’s urgent, propulsive songwriting.
