Beaty Heart stream new track ‘Soft Like Clay’

The track is taken from forthcoming album 'Till The Tomb'.
South London trio Beaty Heart are streaming their new single ‘Soft Like Clay’.

The track is the follow up to recent single ‘Flora’, and comes ahead of a new album ’Till The Tomb’, set for release on 29th July.

“We wrote Soft Like Clay in an asbestos haze on a building site in Peckham,” the band explain. “We were too broke to afford a rehearsal space, so we ended up in a friend’s basement, surrounded by earthy colours, dust, trash and bricks, which inspired a fractious sounding song about transformation.”

“The lyrics were a reaction to the constant anxiety and tension which many artists experience as they attempt to forge a path that conflicts with the expectations and demands of society, or reality. If you read the lyrics based on that information, you might perceive a slightly defeatist atmosphere, suggesting a readiness to submit to these demands. But an alternate interpretation portrays a person willing to change and adapt positively to the influence and love of another.”

“During the writing and recording process, this song was constantly being changed and re-moulded, and initially we struggled to find a structure and tonal direction that we were happy with. The anxiety portrayed in the lyrics is a pretty accurate reflection of the song’s creation.”
