Alexander Shields - aka A Grave With No Name - is releasing a new LP at the start of next year. ‘Passover’ will come out on 19th January via Forged Artifacts, and we’ve got the first play of its lead track ‘Wreath’.
A slow, winding acoustic cut, the track hides some pretty dissatisfied lyrics under instrumentation that points towards complete calm.
As Shields explains, “‘Wreath’ is exploration of the relationship between humanity and the land which we inhabit.
“Whereas nature once provided mankind with a source of spirituality, education and sustenance, it has now been tamed, despoiled and commodified, and is used to justify the waging of wars, prejudice, and greed. The song asks for a moral awakening, and a return to a simpler, more considered way of living.”
