Chimes serves as the third preview of the band’s upcoming album, ‘Into The Blue’, due out on August 20 via Hassle.
Cast across thick layers of guitar over driving drums, the track follows the previously shared cuts Back To Nothing and the title track. Lead singer and guitarist Ritzy Bryan said:
“I was at a low point just prior to writing this record, I was going through a difficult breakup that left me feeling quite lost and questioning myself. In the middle of that sadness, I had a whole week of strange little serendipitous events that ended up inspiring the lyrics for Chimes. I felt like something or someone was looking out for me. Little signs and symbols that makes you feel like there’s a lot that we don’t understand about our connectivity, the earth talking back to you.
“The wind chimes that my grandfather made (he passed in 2013), they hang at my house here in Utah, they’ve come all the way from Manchester, UK to the SW desert. They would ring even without a breeze. I imagined that he was rooting for me to move forward, to trust in things again and that the love you put out will eventually come back to you.”
The group’s last full-length came in the form of ‘Aaarth’, released in 2018. They’ll perform in Wrexham as part of Focus Wales on October 8.
