Her’s ‘Low Beam’
I am SO tired. I know I say that a lot, but this time I really am tired. I had an early meeting this morning so had to get up at 6:30 am, a full four hours before my natural waking time. I don’t know why I still have the body clock of a student, and I can’t even say I’m a night owl because I’m usually in bed before midnight. It’s making the completion of my work today extremely difficult, I have to say. For the last twenty minutes I have essentially been staring blankly at my screen, occasionally remembering what I was supposed to be doing, and promptly forgetting again. For that reason, I am going to keep today’s Track Of The Day short and sweet. I’ve long been a fan of Her’s, and latest single ‘Low Beam’ does not disappoint. Having just announced the release of their debut album ‘Invitation To Her’s’, the duos new track is ‘a commentary on toxic masculinity, viewed through the eyes of a biker who feels alienated by the gangs in the scene’. With characteristically jangly guitars, 80s inspired synths, and intricate bass lines, lead singer Stephen Fitzpatrick’s vocal cascades between extreme lows and soaring highs, resulting in a stunning sound world that is equally cool as it is kitsch. Enjoy.
