The first single from the Sherman Oaks, California singer-songwriter Garrett Hazen, "Some Brutal Love" is "really about things I tend to get annoyed with either in myself or in other people around me," he says. He adds, "Whatever relationships are brought up in these songs are really much more of a metaphor for some sort of broader idea. At the end of the day I'm a guy who grew up with an awesome family and am happily married. So to say that these songs are about some deep internal conflict or some past heartbreak would be inauthentic. I think I'm just a guy who gets annoyed with himself sometimes."
