Set for release on 25th November, Glasgow’s Humour have announced their debut EP ‘Pure Misery’.
A six-track offering, today they’re sharing new track ‘Alive and Well’ alongside the news. “Alive and Well came together quite suddenly after a prolonged period of trying to make it work,” the band’s Andreas Christodoulidis explains. “Jack and Ross had written the bones of the song, and showed it to me with the music in a more or less complete form. They sent me a voice note in which they were muttering along to the music, saying things like ‘I was so confused, I couldn’t understand it. Everyone’s pissed off at me,’ and I could hear laughing, and didn’t think they were that serious about those being the lyrics.
“Jack then suggested that I scream the lyrics as loudly as I could, which sounded right for the song when I did. I wanted the vocal to sound like somebody drunk and feeling sorry for themselves. I then wrote the lyrics to the chorus, which are loosely about getting away from a place and a feeling, but sensing that you won’t ever manage to.”
