Metz’ Alex Edkins has revealed another single from his self-titled debut Weird Nightmare album.
Titled ‘Lusitania’, it follows up on first cut ‘Searching For You’, and comes alongside a Colin Medley-directed video.
“‘Lusitania’ was a big breakthrough for the entire Weird Nightmare album,” Edkins explains. “I realised that, musically, my goal was to make songs that would make people feel good! This idea of waking up from a terrible dream or winter changing into spring. Momentary relief. We all need that feeling right now and music has always been what I turn to most.”
Speaking about the album, he continues: “I had always planned on finishing these songs, but being unable to tour with METZ, and forced to lock down, really gave me a push. It was a godsend for me. The hours would disappear and I would get lost in the music and record. It was a beautiful escape.”
“I’ve found a new confidence in my writing and producing. I really enjoy creating and recording, and I wanted this record to reflect how much fun I was having.”
‘Weird Nightmare’ is set for release on 20th May via Sub Pop.
