After some time away, Newcastle rock trio Cheap Lunch drop their latest single Brown Sky. The track, with its Grungy bass, fuzzed-up Sabbath-esque riffs and expansive, reverb-drenched vocals, is one they’ve had for a while but has been polished off and released to raise money for Newcastle Mutual Aid.

You can purchase the single via their Bandcamp page. Here the band tells us about the inspiration behind the track…

Brown Sky was written years ago and ‘lost’ by the powers that be. Kept secret, its truth suppressed, it waited to be found again and its message revealed! 

It foretells the story of the brown sky of impending doom, brought upon by the old world rich who gorge themselves on this now floating nothing of a planet. The only solace is the peace of mind that at least you know the time will come and the end is certain. The brown sky boils as the black eyes of the deliberately stupefied watch on helpless to the torture of earth. 

Musically it’s a mixed bag, we were all listening to very different things and that shows sometimes, hopefully. We wanted to create the contrast of some softer parts against the obvious heavy riffs. Blank Studios and Chris McManus did a great job as always and helped us keep the live sound we enjoyed. 

We found the recording while Andrew was bleaching his hard drives or whatever and he hesitated before handing it over. We all know this should’ve been Flat Earth.
