Alt-rock darlings Another Sky return after a three-year absence from the spotlight. Their long-awaited single ‘Psychopath’ is a far more punchy and direct rock song than anything from their 2020 debut record, I Slept On The Floor. The new track comes served with a raw acoustic B-Side ‘Watching Basinski’, recorded in their bedrooms during lockdown.
“Most of our upcoming music is pretty influenced by music from the late 90s and early 00s. So releasing an A-Side and B-Side felt like a good way of paying homage to the era we grew up in.” says lead singer Catrin Vincent.
On the songs themselves, Vincent comments “They reflect a really personal journey. I usually hate writing lyrics about myself, but during lockdown, it was the only thing I had to write about. I was so surprised to find multitudes of grief and sadness disguised as anger. ‘Psychopath’ captures the angriest I’ve ever felt. For years, I felt like that rage could never be voiced.”
On the B-Side Catrin adds, “’Watching Basinski’ captures the grief that lies underneath that anger. That’s what our new music is trying to convey; the human journey from fear and anger through to love and acceptance.”
