about

Written just after Sasha (vocals) went through a series of major life changes, the upcoming single is named 'Silence'. The song speaks of a man with schizophrenia that finds catharsis in the woman of his dreams.

Her memory encapsulates and defines his conscious being, both easing his affliction with comfort and guidance, while in turn leading to painful withdrawals as the memory slowly fades. The accompanying film-clip is a stark and minimalist portrayal of this tumultuous internal struggle.

Musically, the song splits into two wild directions. The verse features a chugging southern hip-hop beat with deep synthesisers and urging vocals. The chorus introduces stabbing guitars, swirling strings, soaring mellotrons and bombastic acoustic drums, all of which drive this cathartic story to an epic close.

lyrics

She cuts off the lids of my eyes
Seeing the light once again
So where are the ones who can see?
Does this now mean it's the end?
A love not continued it we are

Cut from a cloth, like father like son
An arrangement like the bliss of the sun

Oh when she comes over
I'm in circles again, again
It's a game of no words
It's a space in a crowd
Alive where there's no silence

She said she'd lead the way into the light
I saw the haze it's bright
I fought for days and nights

The story of one, ain't the story of all
A colourful soul in a dark grey world
We know who we are, we are who we're told
A light that will shine and the darkness that follows

Cut from a cloth, like father like son
An arrangement like the bliss of the sun

Oh when she comes over
I'm in circles again, again
It's a game of no words
It's a space in a crowd
Alive where there's no silence
