The Unfit: Picture

Seattle's The Unfit formed in 2012, and after many years of occasional recordings and live shows, they're about ready with the release of their self-titled debut which arrives in June 2020 on Share It Music.

First single, Picture, is a fevered piece that begins from grunge and extends to post hardcore, with the band sounding formidable, and bringing to mind a lot from the rich musical history of their home grounds. Singer and bassist Jake Knuth describes it: "The song is generally about loss and change – it’s meant different things to me in this way at different times. It’s also a little bit about the regret of having things for granted.

"On a more specific level, it’s about the terror and sadness that overcomes me when I think about the fact that my memory is me and that my memory is limited and impermanent – and everything that I am and every moment, however profound, however beautiful, will go away and, for all anyone knows or cares, ultimately might as well never have existed.

"And on a very specific, literal level, this song makes me think of my kids and my youth, and I want to preserve what I can in whatever form I can to remember things. My kids will never be babies again, and all of the profound moments in their development fade and disappear over time without things to keep the memory alive. Same goes for all of the early years of my own life that I remember less and less of all the time."

The Unfit are composed of old high school friends and Jake Knuth, Michael Lee, T.J. Johnson, and Tyler Johnson.
