Gilla Band have shared their new single, ‘Backwash’.
The track is taken from their new album ‘Most Normal’, set to arrive on 7th October via Rough Trade.
“The initial idea for the whole album was that it would loosely sound like a dream,” the band’s Dara Kiely explains. “We didn’t really stick to the brief but it lead us down different sonic avenues. ‘Backwash’ is one of the few tracks where the words represent a dream-like circumstance. The lyrics are from a stream of consciousness rant, weird imagery and all that.
“The track is about attraction – fancying someone and not knowing what to say exactly. It’s an indirect love song, knowing you like someone but can’t quite articulate it. Thinking that you have already expressed your feelings, but like waking up from a dream you’ve forgotten what you actually have said or felt.”
