Their fifth album New Spirit, arrives on February 17th on Felte and they’ve just revealed a new song ‘Another Life’, which follows on a theme of life and social expectation as Richard Pike says.
To me, Another Life is about expectation and things falling short of that expectation. It’s about middle class ‘aspirational’ desire and their ultimate dissatisfaction. And it’s about my own dissatisfaction with political leaders’ short-sighted and archaic regression of ideas, eating up a country’s own future. Aside from the political rant against new conservatism – which it is – it’s also a personal look at human nature and a hopeful pining for another life. It’s also got a great beat.”
Indeed it does, a vibrating, vibey beat.
