Jim Ward is a recognizable name, not only because of his contribution to the noisy emo venture that was At The Drive-In but also later with the hardened Sparta, which pieced together equal parts abrasiveness, melody, and symphonic cacophony throughout the years.
This year, Ward is set to release his first solo release Daggers (Dine Alone), a welcomed reprieve for 2021, taking things back to his own musical roots. Today he shares the video for his latest single “I Got A Secret,” which features Shawna Potter of War On Women.
Jim Ward offers, “‘I Got A Secret ‘was one of the very first riffs that shaped the direction of this record- raw, angry, unapologetic guitar- as soon as the music was finished and I began writing vocals I knew I wanted a call and response with someone that could push me and immediately called Shawna. I was over the moon she not just agreed to sing with me but absolutely brought all her brilliance and power with her to the song.”
