Straight White Teeth’s lush and defiantly triumphant new single Lifetime was written and recorded during what was undoubtedly one of the worst years of songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Patrick McGuire’s life. After the former Flashbulb Fires frontman moved to Philadelphia in late 2015, he sustained a severe injury to his right arm in a hit-and-run biking accident that left his ability to play guitar and piano in question. Lifetime and all its windswept euphoria feels strangely optimistic for being created during a trying 11-month period between two surgeries McGuire underwent to bring full functionality back to his arm. To make matters worse, in May of 2017, the lo-fi pop musician and his girlfriend and former bandmate, Ella Trujillo, were forced to leave their Philadelphia home at the request of local police because of violent conditions on their block.
Lifetime is a sundrenched promise that McGuire plans to continue making compelling pop music no matter what happens to him.
