Reliably informed

The rebellion, protest and theatre of rock is certainly not lost in the newest single from THRONES, where their haunting balladic lyrics lament a past which refuses to fade: “It happens every time I close my eyes I think of you / And where we used to be.” A certain sense of nihilistic grit sticks to the track as sand may cling in-between your toes, with regret rising and falling within the lyrics like the tide (“Strayed too far from the path / I was there, I was there running”).

The lyrical desolation of Memories is coupled with pulsing piano keys and a tsunami of drums which accentuate the band’s metalcore influences and consecrate Memories as an electrically gut-wrenching track.
