“Dirty Milk,” the new single from heavy-hitting L.A. alt-rock trio Spare Parts for Broken Hearts, was made before the pandemic. And since then, the milk has only grown more sour.

In their typically turbulent and primal fashion, singer-guitarist Sarah Green, drummer Jessica Lankford and bassist Jonny Cifuentes speak to the alienation of a generation that, fed empty promises (or none at all) in their youth, still feels malnourished as adults. “Are you anonymous / are you just like me?” Green asks, acknowledging she’d rather be alone than suckling at the teat of religion.

“The song is about lack, it’s about recourse,” Green says. “It’s about being a kid whose parents are ill-equipped to handle the responsibility of a whole other human turning out secure, so we learn these attachment styles within that dynamic and it sets us up to seek out that repeated pattern in others throughout life.

“Now we’re adults and we’re still lost, expected to know more than we know and need less than we do. Here we are now in present time, needing more than we’ve ever needed, and the system we are to rely upon and invest in is a hoax. The nuclear family has proved itself the same, it’s all the same. You’re fending for yourself as always and for what seems like forever. ‘Are you anonymous, are you just like me?’ is us asking, ‘Do you see me? I’m like you, too, and I think we’ve been fighting the same battle together for so long, from the same side, against the same thing.’ Now we unite, what we’re being fed isn’t, and has never been, good enough.”

Green feels that months into a period including a pandemic, political upheaval and sociopolitical unrest, the timing was right for the song. “As we fought alongside our friends and communities who began to dismantle and slowly attempt to correct any semblance of history through protest, and as we watched our government so obviously expose itself to even the most oblivious observer, we looked back at ‘Dirty Milk’ and felt that it never seemed more relevant in its message,” she says.

The song, Spare Parts’ second single this year, is slated for inclusion on the trio’s debut album, arriving next spring.
