Home Song Reviews Under The Rug’s “A Serial Killer Comes Home” Is Halloween In November

Under The Rug’s “A Serial Killer Comes Home” Is Halloween In November

by Alana Ballantyne

“A Serial Killer Comes Home” from Under the Rug is truly creepy and very niche.

The song is exactly what it says on the tin. It’s about a serial killer getting to kill again after, apparently, a bit of a break. Imagine if someone put Jeffrey Dahmer’s internal monologue to song, that’s pretty much ‘A Serial Killer Comes Home’ to a tee. To appreciate this track in all its darkness, you need to watch the accompanying music video. The whole thing is very low budget and all around weird. I only wish I had heard this song a little closer to Halloween.

Don’t believe me? Here is just a taste of the lyrics;

Seasons go by
where I hardly get to murder a fly
So I figured it time
to find myself back again
I’m finally home
to this mecca of dark, crooked roads,
where I can unload
on this homely girl walking alone,
glued to her phone;
I’m finally home.

Yep. The singer is stalking that girl. This song is straight up about a guy thinking about how great it will be to get back to murdering people. The video makes it even more creepy as it features a couple of soon to be victims who don’t appear very happy and some very trippy imagery. Do try and take the whole package in the spirit of good fun in which I think it was intended. The story of “A Serial Killer Comes Home” is not for everyone, but art is art and should not be constrained by silly considerations like taste.

All that being said, the song itself is not bad. It’s alt rock, and if that’s your genre this song is for you. Under The Rug is an independent alt-rock band from Los Angeles. Their sounds feels new, but the band has been together producing music for over ten years. Under the Rug produce their music independently, making them one of the few viable “true indie” bands of the last five years. The band’s debut LP, “The Pale King” is set to be released in the fall of 2019, according to their website.

These guys are creative. They are clearly hard working and their sound is all their own. If you want to support a band that truly does not care what people think, Under the Rug is the band for you.

Wonderful blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for
a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed
.. Any suggestions? Thank you!
