Reliably informed

There’s a dreamy stoicism to this track by Elephant Memoirs, calling up images of a stormy sea voyage, and a teary-eyed captain journeying fiercely to reclaim his destroyed homeland.

It charges forth in an interesting, linear way: we’re not on the ship ourselves, it’s more like we’re watching the events play out from a safe distance, from left to right, and the heartbroken male cries that ride along with it give it the soothing feel of a story being re-told. Some might not be fans of the bounce-back effect on the vocals, preferring instead a more rugged and much less contained sound, but there is plenty of feeling still there, and the track’s heartfelt chaos is a nice hat-tip to Biffy Clyro.

Released: 01.02.21
