Come On Live Long are set to release their second album In The Still on May 19th and ahead of that date, they’ve announced a Whelan’s gig on June 17th and shared the title track and a video for the song by Albert Hooi with dancing by Robyn Byrne.
This one was written out west in the depths of a jam session. We brought it back to life out with Rian Trench and did some experimenting with the harsh electronic drums you hear on the end. It also features a Kalimba borrowed from a friend that was re-amped using one of Rian’s homemade amplifiers to give it a really dirty sound. You’ll hear that just where the tune breaks towards the end!
“For us this album represents a lot more than just four years of hard graft. It is signiﬁcant because it documents a time where we collectively learned how to accept life in all of its highs and lows, that when things become dormant there is always something waiting to happen, an imminent stir in the still, in whatever form that may be. We feel we have pressed a lot of ourselves into this one. Some of these songs coming straight from our most personal spaces, late at night, in our respective bedrooms, and some coming from energetic bursts of all day and all night writing sessions together. We know this one has taken its time but we have pored over every tiny facet of it to make sure it is exactly as we want you to hear it.”
