Local rock band Never Better will released its new song, “Flood,” on Oct. 2.

The track is a musical representation of the chaos that comes along with hurricane season in Charleston. The lyrics discuss this need for control and the inevitability and unpredictability of the storm.

The song begins with a heavy instrumental, fading to let songwriter DJ Edwards’ vocals take over. Throughout the song, they bring the bass and drums back to elevate the sound.

“Flood” also features the studio debut of the band’s gong. “‘Flood’ is the perfect song for the gong’s studio debut because of the rise and fall of the song structure,” Edwards said.
