Today’s track of the day comes from Catch Fire with their new single Fault Line! The track is lifted from the Nottingham quartet’s forthcoming debut album Karma Owes Me A Lifetime Of Happiness (November 16, Rude Records).
Drummer Ash Wain says; “Fault Line was the second track that we wrote for KOMALOH. It’s one of our favourites off of the record, mainly because the instrumentation is really interesting. It marks a point on the album where the pace picks up slightly, and introduces a new vibe after Petrifaction and Malignance. It has a samba feel to it and lots of groove; sonically it is lighter, but the lyrical content remains relatively dark throughout. It’s also the first ‘proper’ introduction to Jordan’s (bass) vocals. He has a ton of spots on the record, and it’s about time you heard some. We’re all really excited to play it live already.
It’s titled Fault Line, because the song is about feeling fragile and like at any moment you’re going to detonate. A Fault Line in the Earth is where an earthquake is likely to occur due to a fracture, so it’s a metaphor for that really. It also deals with depression, vulnerability and helplessness. “How do you escape when you don’t know what you’re running from?” is a feeling I often endure. I’m often low without knowing why, or how to myself feel better, and that’s what this song is about”
