Morning Commute: The Prussians “Karma”

For your morning commute on this beautiful (at least here) Sunday morning is from your bed to your favorite brunch spot, but we’ve got you covered either way.

Hailing from the small island of Mallorca, off of the coast of Spain, this 5 piece indie rock group is making the kind of music that deserves to be heard on a global scale. I don’t know what the music scene is like on the island, but The Prussians have not only made the Morning Commute today, but have already infiltrated multiple personal playlists.

I hate that we came across this song immediately after the Bad Luck episode of the podcast because as you may have guessed from the title, this song is all about whether Karma is real or not.

Do you believe in karma instantly?
Then why are your actions so boring?

A question that we ask ourselves here at B-Side Guys all the time is essentially that same question. Do you believe that actions you take change future events? Obviously if you make the action today to not fill up a tire that’s low, it can lead to a flat tire, but if I pass a homeless man on the side of the road and do nothing to help, is that the cause for the flat tire? In short, I would lean towards a resounding no. That begs the question, “Why are you making such safe choices in your day to day life then?”

With heady vocals that fall in line with Arctic Monkeys, the opening verse is about as close to perfect as it gets. Starting with vocals and snaps, every measure adds something new until “3,2,1,” and then the song really starts.

If you find yourself with extra time on the commute, watch their music video for Soul too. Only if your commute is by public transportation, carpool, walking, or anything where you aren’t behind the wheel. Watch responsibly.

Also, side note to the band if you’re reading this, let us know about the music scene on the island. We would love to find out more.
