The Blinders have shared their new track ‘Black Glass’, the latest and final track to be taken from their upcoming album Fantasies Of A Stay At Home Psychopath ahead of its release on July 17th via Modern Sky UK.
A constantly evolving journey, which builds from a sparse and foreboding blend of bass, drums and ruminative vocals into a powerful frenzy of distorted guitars, ‘Black Glass’ is a powerfully free-formed dose of infectious instrumentation and thought-provoking lyricism. The track is accompanied by an absorbing lyric video, with a surreal and hypnotic montage of historic footage serving to capture the existential dread that the world faces today.
“This song is about a disturbed introvert’s conversation between him and himself, whose need for isolation has reached its peak,” explain the band. “No longer does he simply keep the blinds drawn to appease his twisted and paranoid appetite, for slowly he begins to talk through his methods in order to reassure himself that his actions are completely sane.
“As the monologue unravels, his words become more and more deranged and unhinged until finally his nerve implodes. He is left alone with his cyclone of self-righteous, existential rambling thoughts around his mind.”
The new track follows the release of ‘Mule Track’ – which premiered with Steve Lamacq on 6Music and was featured in Spotify’s New Music Friday, Punk List, All New Rock, New Noise and The Rock list playlists – ‘Lunatic (With A Loaded Gun)’, a fiery anthem of defiance against political and social injustices, and ‘40 Days And Forty Nights’, which like their debut single ‘Circle Song’, was playlisted at BBC 6Music in addition to receiving extensive support from Huw Stephens and Jack Saunders at Radio 1 and John Kennedy at Radio X.
