Swedish Death Candy – Green
London based international rockers Swedish Death Candy have revealed their new single Green! Vocalist Louis Perry says: “The word ‘green’ can be used in many different contexts—other than being a colour associated with nature, grassy fields, freshness, health, or psychedelic plants, it’s considered good luck in some cultures, whilst being bad luck in others. It’s also used as an expression for someone who’s naive or new to something, and the colour of envy, greed, sickness and money. I thought it worked as a metaphor about perspective.
“Sonically, the song jumps around a lot, the riffs are kinda heavy, hectic and slightly ugly-sounding, whereas the verses have a sweeter, dreamy feel about them. It was actually the first new song we wrote after finishing the first album—it felt almost like a continuation and came together pretty quickly from jamming.
“We’re about to head on tour with Nashville duders All Them Witches, who are one of our favourite bands, and we can’t wait. Be sure to catch a date if you can!”
Creature – Witch’s Grip
Birmingham’s Creature are gearing up for the May 3 release of their new EP Ex Hex (Grey Ghost Records) with the release of new single Witch’s Grip! Guitarist and lead vocalist James Thompson says: “Witch’s Grip is a metaphor for the feeling of isolation, anxiety and confusion a person can feel at their lowest. Experiencing self-doubt can cause us to grieve for a life that once felt less complicated – so the song is very much an internal monologue, questioning all and looking for answers or respite. The video is a visual representation of this theme, with the protagonist chasing the version of herself she wishes she was; leading her into the woods and ultimately a mental abyss.”
Novacub – Wait Up
Novacub vocalist Louise Birtles says their new single Wait Up “is about one last attempt to save a relationship from its inevitable death.”
Cielo Drive – Rise
Bath rockers Cielo Drive reveal their new single Rise, taken from forthcoming debut album Ruins (May 17).
