Dowsing announce new album ‘No One Said This Would Be Easy,’ share new song

Chicago emo band Dowsing have announced their fifth album, No One Said This Would Be Easy, due December 1 via Asian Man Records and Evan Weiss’ Storm Chasers LTD. The album was recorded and mixed by guitarist Mikey Crotty, and in a new interview with The Alternative, band leader Erik “Rik” Czaja said, “The new record is about moving on from a relationship, about the pandemic, about death and all that piles up when they all happen at the same time. I am a happy and eccentric person and more so now than ever. I still only write about the sad things. It’s easier.”

The lead single is “It Was Easy,” a worm, modest, hooky emo song that Rik tells The Alternative this about: “Personally, this might be the closest Dowsing release to bridge the gap between ‘early’ dowsing and ‘current’ Dowsing. I think that particularly rings true in the song ‘It Was Easy’ and that’s why it’s the first single.” Listen below.
