Song of the Day: Into it. Over It. – ‘A Trip Around The Sun’

Into it Over It

Ever since Evan Thomas Weiss debuted Into it. Over It. in 2007, he has constantly leaned into introspective lyrics, carving out a body of work that has plenty of depth. From the early intimacy of ‘Anchor’  to the sweeping tone of ‘Anesthetic’ (from 2016’s ‘Standards’) to new single, ‘A Trip Around The Sun’, Weiss has considerably (and comfortably) blossomed IIOI into a dynamic group.

The aforementioned track, sees Weiss continue to be joined by Joe George on guitar, Adam Beck (Sincere Engineer) on drums, and Matthew Frank (Lifted Bells, Their / They’re / There) on bass. This incarnation of Into it. Over It. has existed since 2020, yet as evident on ‘A Trip Around The Sun’, the lyrical approach remains the same. It sees Weiss honing on the theme of self-care and personal balance, an idea that is easily relatable.

“It’s about recognizing a very real need to spend quality time with friends doing remote friend things. Letting loose. Bonding. Being a certain kind of yourself. This all so you can go back to your daily life and be the most complete version of yourself,” explains Weiss. “More specifically it’s about my friend’s bachelor party and an adventure in the mountains with my absolute fuckin’ dudes.”

Beck’s steady tempo is accompanied by an airy instrumental that builds towards the first chorus. Weiss’ vocals are delivered with comfortable warmth, complementing the reflective words he sings. Along with George, Frank, and Beck, creates a layered number that never outstretches itself.

The release of ‘A Trip Around The Sun’ comes as Into It. Over It. prepare for their first full-band tour of the UK in eight years.

The summer run will see them by joined by Sweet Pill and Tangled Hair.
