Another Sky have aired a new track.
‘The Cracks’ is taken from the group’s forthcoming EP ‘Life Was Coming In Through The Blinds’, set for release on 14th June.
The band’s Catrin Vincent describes the song as “a response to a Leonard Cohen lyric, “the cracks, that’s how the light gets in”. The song is an ode to our generation, one that is more self-aware and being forced to have the difficult conversations that lead to progress and evolution. It’s inspired by the little girl fined by the council for setting up a lemonade stall, the kids suing the US government for global warming, teenagers like Greta Thunberg. It’s about our generation’s unique position of facing extinction.”
It follows ‘Apple Tree’, also featuring on the EP.
Another Sky tour the UK from late April.
