Everything But The Girl: Ακόμα ένα single από το ‘Fuse’!

Everything But The Girl: Ακόμα ένα single από το δίσκο 'Fuse'!

Οι Everything But The Girl επιστρέφουν λοιπόν με το νέο τους δίσκο Fuse!  Είκοσι χρόνια είναι πολλά για να περιμένουμε, όπως και οι ίδιοι. Έχοντας ήδη ακούσει τα δυο πρώτα singles του δίσκου, Nothing Left To Lose και Caution To The Wind, έρχονται να μας ξεσηκώσουν. Αυτή τη φορά με ένα τρίτο κομμάτι στην σειρά, που έχει τον τίτλο Run a red light.

Λίγο πιο μελαγχολικό, σύμφωνα με τα πρώτα δείγματα που μας έδωσαν. Ακούστε το, δείτε το και γενικά πάρτε μια γεύση!

Fuse | Everything But The Girl

Όπως έχουμε ξαναπεί, ο νέος δίσκος έρχεται στις 21 Απριλίου και φυσικά θα έχει τον τίτλο Fuse. Λίγο υπομονή λοιπόν και οι ημέρες περνάνε σα νεράκι!
Έτσι για την πληροφορία, οι Thorn και Watt ηχογράφησαν στην ουσία τη συνέχεια του Temperamental του 1999 κρυφά σε ένα μικρό στούντιο, ενώ συνεργάστηκαν με τον Bruno Ellingham .

“I met a lot of characters during my years in clubland, and I wrote this song about the guy at the end of the night, who dreams his big moment is just around the corner,” Watt said of the song in a statement. “All the bravado and good intentions masking the vulnerability.”

“The video is like a dream of the story,” Thorn said in a statement. “We’ve found with this record that choreography can express the emotion in our music without having to be too literal. The characters, the clothes, the movement, the direction all just fit. Charlie and his team really get the feelings we’re going for. It’s been a great collaboration.”

Caution to The Wind

London, March 2023. Lyrics to ‘Caution to The Wind’. Tracey’s notebook on the piano at home. ‘Caution to The Wind’ is quite an unusual track for us in that it’s at a house tempo but almost euphoric. Usually we inject sadness into this musical mood, but this one has a proper celebratory lyric – the stars, the sky like a cathedral, the idea of a person coming home, and throwing caution to the wind, demanding to get close to someone. There is a sense of seizing the moment, of wanting to live in the now.

It’s a song of few words, making use of repetition in a way that becomes hypnotic and trance-like. We get asked sometimes in interviews about the difference between writing songs and writing prose. Often we talk about how song lyrics seem to bubble up from the unconscious, and the way they often make use of repeated words and refrains, which gives them a magical, incantatory quality. Far from the rational control that can be part of writing prose.

And the music of this track cycles round and around too. As Ben said at the time of its release: ‘I let the words quickly collapse and loop inside the production’. There’s a lot of tension and release, a sense of building drama, of a perpetual point in time. The beat takes a while to fully come in, and Tracey’s vocal is heavily filtered in places, keeping you in suspense. In the middle section, you can hear us singing together, our voices blending, becoming hard to distinguish from each other, a fusing of our two sounds.

“Caution to the wind” lines made her think of Stevie Nicks, and maybe the track does have a kind of ravey Fleetwood Mac vibe to it: big tom fills and floaty scarves, lots of slightly witchy imagery from the natural world, stars and wind and clouds and dark sky.
