Jan. 6 — Indie rocker Ryam Hamilton is scheduled to release his latest album this spring.

6 Broke My Heart, Fixed My Vision

In anticipation of the album’s release, Hamilton premiered the album’s latest single Friday. The song is the album’s title track. The song is available to stream and download here. The song is the third from the album, behind ‘Paper Planes‘ and ‘On The Edge.’
The musical arrangement featured in the song boasts something of a pop punk vibe alongside a certain indie rock sound. The blending of those influences make for quite the interesting presentation in its own right.
The lyrical theme that is featured in this song is a commentary of sorts about the impact of religious conservatism on Hamilton to this day, according to his own statements.
“I grew up in a VERY conservative Church of Christ,” Hamilton said. “We used to go to church 3 times a week. There are parts of that upbringing that I will never shake. The “fear of God” is ingrained in me, & will seemingly be a part of me forever. Like a ghost, haunting me. This song is about that.”
