LIFE have announced details of their third album, ‘North East Coastal Town’, and debuted the next single to be taken from it, ‘Big Moon Lake’.
Discussing the concept of “North East Coastal Town”, vocalist Mez Green explains: “Hull and the surrounding area runs through our DNA and has shaped us, weathered us, empowered us, embraced us and made us feel accepted.
“‘North East Coastal Town’ is our love letter to the city. The album is an ode to kinship and relationship with its musical and lyrical spine picking out themes of love, desire, beauty, horror, chaos, pride and most importantly the sense of belonging.
“It’s a reflective body of work dedicated to people and place and those that have always been there and made us feel like we belong.
“Upon writing and recording this album it was important to us that this sense of belonging was also reflected in the album’s craft and therefore we used locally based studios, equipment, gear, and the community around us to establish what it means to belong in a ‘North East Coastal Town’.”
New single ‘Big Moon Lake’ follows up on last year’s track ‘Friends Without Names’, and is accompanied by a video set around the band’s studio on the River Humber. Directed by friend Luke Hallett the visual pays homage to 1980’s Top of The Pop’s and fellow Hull band The Red Guitars.
“We wanted ‘Big Moon Lake’ to acknowledge the lyrical social commentary that was littered throughout our first two records whilst expanding the experimental and personal sound that you will hear throughout the new record,” reveals Mez.
“The track is playful and teases everyday themes of missing out, numbness, drinking, smoking and eating badly and generally wanting more for yourself in life. Its resolve being that in hindsight everything is in front of you, it’s on your doorstep and in this case that’s the wondrous county of Yorkshire.
LIFE’s new album ‘North East Coastal Town’ is set for release on 10th June. Check out ‘Big Moon Lake’ below.
