As the first edition to a multi-part series, the Boston indie/emo unit Bay Faction have released an intimate, acoustic live recording of their song “Sasquatch .22.” from their self-titled, 2015 debut LP.

The song takes an extremely forthright approach in detailing the complex feelings that can arise between consistent sexual partners, featuring overt lines such as, “so I called the girl that I’m currently having sex with and I said I loved her / but it was over Facebook / she came over that night / we started having sex and it felt fine / up until she fucking left and then I realized / I tell a damn good lie.”

Although their sound falls somewhere within the realm of indie rock and emo, the band has a distinct jazz influence and a frontman with a smooth, soulful voice unlike any other in the scene right now. This acoustic version strips away the driving rhythm section and gives their intriguingly ominous lyrics the spotlight.
