In This Moment releases the second new song with the title track off their forthcoming new studio album GODMODE out October 27 via BMG. “The lyrics came from feeling powerful and tribal and entrancing. The fact that Chris [Howorth] gets me so much that I can literally send him a voicemail and he sends it back to me in music form shows how in tune we are. It’s been a long time since I screamed on an entire verse for a song. I wanted to release a bunch of stuff and it felt visceral,” says vocalist Maria Brink about the title track.
MYRKUR unfolds the next chapter in her personal mythology of Amalie Bruun, setting a new course for the enigmatic composer, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist. Marked by the birth of her child, and a means of making sense of the storm of emotions in that wake, her forthcoming album Spine charts a new course for Bruun through the most turbulent period of her life to new territories beyond, free from genre constraints, and giving rise to a new range of emotional and sonic contours. Spine’s lead single, ‘Like Humans’, is a blend of lush, airy textures and apprehension-inducing, pounding undertow, where Bruun’s voice floats over the top as if from another dimension. She reveals, “When I wrote ‘Like Humans’ I felt very disconnected and isolated from the human race. The lack of touch and being in the first few years of motherhood forced me to become human in a way I never thought I would. Going through all of these changes at once made me desperately want to feel a connection with the earth and humans. Writing and recording this album helped me heal and succeed with that dream.”

Dealing with a subject very close to home for singer Skarlett; “‘Chemicals is about the struggles day to day with anxiety and how it can take over your whole mind if you’re not careful.” She comments, “Sometimes day-to-day life can feel overwhelming and I’ve learned to take some time out for myself and be kind to myself. It’s what we all forget to do and we all need sometimes just a moment to breathe.” Taken from the band’s upcoming NEW album (due 2024), this track led by Skarlett’s unmistakable voice combines the band’s familiar sense of melodic intent with crushingly heavy riffs and harsh vocals.

It’s melodic, hard-hitting, and punches you right in the chest!” [via All About the Rock]
