The latest single from Brooklyn's BODEGA breaks new ground for the band in that it's a straight up love song. BODEGA has avoided the subject for quite some time, but Ben Hozie wrote "Pillar on the Bridge of Love" about bandmate and partner Nikki Belfigio. Seeing as this is a love song, it's a softer more gentle and nearly pop version of their dance friendly post punk. It's still a BODEGA song, just a BODEGA love song.
Ben Hozie explains the band's new song:
“Our band, for the most part, has avoided pop’s universal subject matter: love. Not because we think it an unworthy subject, but because I haven’t been sure how to approach it in BODEGA’s style.”
