M A S T E R P I E C E !!!
Their swansong really, and what a way to go! A haunting, synth driven 6 minute of epic proportion that in included a huge finger to everyone who wrote them off as kitsch, cheesy pop! This is the ultimate kitchen sink drama that takes something ordinary and turns it into art. It's kind of the ultimate loneliness song, desperate and laden with hints of OCD and traits of PTSD lurking between every monotonous drum beat and snare. It's utterly compelling. One of the bravest single releases ever!
Couldn't agree more! It's a huge finger to everyone who doubted their art, fine art indeed.
