After sharing their first Sonic Blew Singles Club release ‘Swinging At Shadows / Taken To Tualatin’ last month, The Cribs are sharing this month’s single, ‘The Day I Got Lost Again’ and ‘Opaline And Evergreen’.
Talking about The Day I Got Lost Again the band say, “This song is pretty much us guys returning to our embryonic form, trying to rip-off ‘Hard Days Night’ era Beatles…which is to say, it’s probably the closest we’ve sounded to our debut album since around 2004. It’s also the first (and almost certainly last) time you will hear a harmonica in a Cribs song. It follows the classic rock n roll formula of verse/chorus/verse/bad solo/chorus/corny ending - all done and dusted in way under 3 minutes. Just the way we like it - hope you like it too!”
They add about ‘Opaline And Evergreen’, “Another basement recording, we decided to pair this song with ‘The Day I Got Lost Again’ because they are thematically coming from a similar place, lyrics wise - it’s inspired by all of those places that you encounter in your day to day existence, the ones occupied by the ghosts of the memories you made there (for better or worse) - and how simultaneously haunting and wonderful that can be, no matter how outwardly mundane they may appear. And how we miss being able to get lost.”
