‘Mourn’ – which is out tomorrow on Failure By Design - sees them taking the math and emo elements that made ‘I Am Not Your Fault’ such a dazzling ride and builds on it, the bursts of brass adding a different sonic texture. It’s a track that steadily lets itself off the leash, erupting into a cacophony of searing riffs and rolling drum beats.
The track sees vocalist Joey Ashworth around the letting go of someone, the embarrassment of the emotions bundled together and the eventual release of that side of oneself. Joey said: “I tried to write it as stream of consciousness as possible to show that, while it ended recently, the start of it was so long ago so the reasons for my current feelings are kinda lost in the mix somewhere. I just know I must have been this real overwrought teen.
“I always try to write about that which embarrasses me. I think there’s no point doing art where I don’t risk something emotionally because otherwise there’s nothing to connect to. I don’t listen to music when I’m at my best, I listen to it when I’m scared I’m gonna melt away and die. So why would I make music that doesn’t represent that?”
