Indie-pop duo slenderbodies have shared the latest in their run of double singles, ‘husky brown’/’would you break my fall?’.
The tracks are taken from their upcoming album ‘simple shapes’, due for release on 10th June.
Discussing ‘husky brown’, slenderbodies explain; “This song is ultimately about self confidence being achieved through superficial means. It’s an odd take on self love and feeling yourself”.
‘would you break down’, meanwhile, is about “seeing weed as a haven, and asking oneself if it will always be there to make the tough days or the falls in life a little softer and more hazy”.

The album, ‘simple shapes’, also contains recent double singles ‘chamomile’, ‘plastic parts’, ‘tiger balm (magenta)’ and ‘I can’t make up my mind’.
“All we really have are the little moments, and this is at the core of the themes of escapism, joy, frustration and emotional coping that are at the core of this record”, reveal the duo. “The new album explores a theme of lack of authenticity through representing ourselves online. Our first single, ‘plastic parts’ was the genesis of this, and is further explored through the concept of the mannequins in our visual content. Beyond that initial theme, we explore themes of staying present as a means to deal with difficult things in the world, and paying attention to the role that music plays in our lives to let us escape into another world. overall theme of looking for contentment and consistent comfort over explosive fleeting joys”.
