Gengahr share new track ‘Icarus’

Their newbie comes ahead of the release of their new album ‘Sanctuary’ on Friday (31st January).

With their third album ‘Sanctuary’ landing tomorrow (31st January), Gengahr are giving us our final teaser of what to expect with dreamy new track ‘Icarus’.

“’Icarus’ is a song about growing up and coming to terms with the expectations of our youth,” they explain. “As a child we believe anything is possible but as we get older there is a crushing realisation as we begin to understand that the journey of life has its own uncontrollable trajectory. Dave East, who made the videos for ‘Heavenly Maybe’ and ‘Everything & More’, created the visuals to go with it. Shot near his home in Cape Town the film depicts a car driving down one mountain at night in search of another to climb - much as in life, as we abandon one weight of expectation in search of a new pinnacle.”
