New release ‘Laid To Rest’ is an energetic double-A side and perfectly matches complex sound worlds with a healthy amount of pop sensibility.
A – Laid to Rest: Nostalgic, distant melancholy. A wry piece of morbid self-reflection, about ensuring to remember the bits we’d rather were forgotten.
AA – Double Bind: Uplifting, with tricky drum pattern. A double bind can be defined as “a situation in which a person is confronted with two irreconcilable demands or a choice between two undesirable courses of action” – the lyrics speak of an acceptance of this fate, and so the song is left with a rather upbeat tone overall, despite exploring such a bleak predicament.
