After three years out of the spotlight, Another Sky have returned with their punchy new single ‘Psychopath’ alongside an acoustic B-side, ‘Watching Basinski’.
The lead single goes back their rock-inspired roots, shown on 2020’s ‘Brave Face’, but takes an even more electrifying route.
Lead singer Catrin Vincent says the songs ‘’reflect a really personal journey.’’
‘’I usually hate writing lyrics about myself, but during lockdown, it was the only thing I had to write about. I was so surprised to find multitudes of grief and sadness disguised as anger. ‘Psychopath’ captures the angriest I’ve ever felt. For years, I felt like that rage could never be voiced.’’
On the other hand, Vincent says ‘’’Watching Basinski’ captures the grief that lies underneath that anger.’’
The band released both tracks, which have completely different sounds, as a tribute to the music that they grew up listening to.
“Most of our upcoming music is pretty influenced by music from the late 90s and early 00s, so releasing an A-Side and B-Side felt like a good way of paying homage to the era we grew up in.” says Vincent.
Their return comes with the news of them signing to Republic Records in the US.
Tune in to both tracks now.
