The headline sounds saucy doesn’t it? Well Southampton punk-rockers Miss Vincent are back with a new EP announcement and a clear progression of sound! The EP Somewhere Else is set for release on May 19, 2017 via Uncle M.
Lead single The Lovers is described by frontman Alex Marshall as; “The title refers to a famous pair of skeletons that were buried together in an embrace, called ‘The Lovers of Valdaro’ as I’ve always been enamoured with the macabre beauty of the romance surrounding that story, and it fitted the theme of the song perfectly. It’s, unsurprisingly, a love song. But, it’s different from most in that it’s a pretty fundamental song, rather than a specific situation. It’s about doubt – looking back at past mistakes, how you could have acted differently and how it may have turned out if you had… Looking at missed opportunities – things you didn’t do, or maybe did do… and worrying about what the future holds, how you can avoid making the same errors and try and not screw things up. With all that said, the main message is that no matter how much you worry about it, it doesn’t change the past or predict the future but it can ruin something good, so the best way to go is to love without limits. That’s what is really important.
We chose The Lovers as the first song for people to hear because it felt like the most natural thing to do. In that sense, it’s pretty indicative of what to expect from the rest of the record – honest and perceptive punk rock songs with great hooks that are a statement of identity for us. This is the kind of music we’ve always wanted to make and not to say that we’re not proud of our previous releases, because we are, but this record feels so, so right.”
