Ahead of the release of their debut EP ‘Pure Misery’ on 25th November via So Young Records, Humour are sharing their latest single ‘good boys remember well’.
“This song’s about a really tragic submarine disaster Andreas heard about one day,” the band explain. “He just lifts a bunch of particularly sad lines from Wikipedia about it rather than adding too much of his own perspective. I’ve always thought this was a cool thing about this song. It seems like he’s got a megaphone and is just sort of relentlessly listing facts and figures about the disaster in a desperate attempt to make you feel the way he did when he heard about it.”
Have a listen below.
