Off-kilter Glaswegian five-piece Humour continue to unveil their upcoming debut EP, ‘pure misery’, with the new single, ‘good boys remember well’.
It is their fourth single release following ‘yeah, mud!’, ‘alive and well’, and ‘pure misery’ – all of which will also be included in the forthcoming project. The six-track EP will arrive in full on November 25th via So Young Records; the newest cut is the project’s dramatic closer, a foreboding closer that hones in on the group’s post-punk and hardcore influences.
“This song’s about a really tragic submarine disaster Andreas [Christodoulidis, vocalist] heard about one day,” Humour have shared on ‘good boys remember well’. “He just lifts a bunch of particularly sad lines from Wikipedia about it rather than adding too much of his own perspective. I’ve always thought this was a cool thing about this song. It seems like he’s got a megaphone and is just sort of relentlessly listing facts and figures about the disaster in a desperate attempt to make you feel the way he did when he heard about it.”
