Atlanta Pop Band Writes a Song Entirely About MARTA

New, 1 comment

If you're searching for some new jams to rock out to while riding MARTA, the band Breathers has totally got you covered with their new song "Colored Lines." The Atlanta-based band managed to write a three-and-1/2 minute song about MARTA — admittedly, there's a good two minutes of just new-wave instrumentals. With lyrics including, "Weekends — I'm waiting 30 at Lindbergh" and, "Rush hour — Five Points at a standstill," and something about dividing the rich and the poor, it's unlikely that MARTA will adopt it as a theme song anytime soon. (Although this lyric is handy intel, "Red Line... It's the same as the Gold Line... Yeah...") In any case, the Breathers may have just written history's best/only avant-pop oddity about mass transit in a traffic-choked Southern metropolis.
