Listen: Gengahr return with ‘Carrion’

Gengahr return with ‘Carrion’

It’s the first taster from the band’s upcoming second album.

Gengahr are back! Over two years since the band’s five star-rated debut album ‘A Dream Outside’, the quartet have shared new single ‘Carrion’, the first taster of their upcoming second album.

A dark, swirling beast, the track sees Felix Bushe singing in a swaggering lower register, largely swapping out the falsetto of ‘A Dream Outside’.

Speaking about the track in a press release, Bushe says: “‘Carrion’ is one of the hardest hitting tracks we have written, both musically and lyrically… The track is full of snark and bitterness, but also offers hope and triumph over the oppressive nature of the world we live in today.

“Born in part out of frustration, the song crashes on, an embodiment of the resilience we’ve found essential in getting to where we find ourselves now.”

The band have also announced an intimate London show for next month. They’ll play the capital’s Omeara venue on 13th October.

We joined Gengahr in the studio at the end of last year to catch up on progress with LP2.

“We tried to do it ourselves the first time, really, as much as we could, and this time we’ve opted to get some really strong support in,” Felix explained at the time. “That was important to us to grow and improve as a band - to take other people’s opinions on board more. It’s nice having two people who’ve made a lot of records, who both have their own strengths when it comes to putting together an album and use them, rather than just arrogantly assume we know what’s best for everything.”
