Devastatingly beautiful. Taken from the near perfect record ‘The Ideal Crash’.
“This is the argument that I always feel like never gets as much traction as the ‘tortured artist’ argument, [which] is that artists actually have it a little easier because everybody fucking suffers but artists have something to do with it.”
For me, these guys eclipse most Scottish artists. Whilst old label mates Frightened Rabbit are off making it big and running the risk of becoming the next Snow Patrol/Elbow (thank god for Owl John) and many others are either disappearing or not really going anywhere, these guys just keep making great music. If I am honest, I was not a fan ‘Forget the Night Ahead’ but ‘No One Can Ever Know’ is brilliant and I am loving the sound of this new track taken from forthcoming album ‘Nobody Wants to Be Here and Nobody Wants to Leave’ out on FatCat on 28th October – oddly, the same day as Graveyard Tapes new record ‘White Rooms’ drops. Anyways, enjoy.
This is a funny piece of writing.
