The self titled single from our second EP ‘The Altar’, out 7th April. ‘The Altar’ is told through the lens of an atheist considering jilting their partner in marriage to be, that in an act of desperation turns for guidance to a god he doesn’t believe in. this is really a song about facing huge life changes. We wanted to capture where our minds can go when faced with something totally new – and how irrational our thought processes can be. Despite the anxieties expressed through the tracks lyrics, it’s a rather upbeat, lighthearted tune though.
