Up-and-comers Me and the Trinity are worth your listen, and here’s your chance: “Learn” is a ripshot of a track, and it’s off the band’s upcoming EP, Crux.

Lyrically, Learn is a song about falling into the lie that vices fix problems, or, if we are being honest, at least successfully hide them. I’ve dealt with divorce in my family, I’ve lost loved ones, I’ve made stupid decisions, and each time I thought I’d find some relief at the bottom of a bottle. I was wrong. Musically, I think the song is a standout track on the album. It has a more southern twang to it, and it’s able to stay dirty while still probably being the heaviest track on Crux.

Crux comes out Dec. 9 on Hotfoot Records. Preorders are available now.
