Twin Atlantic have returned with a brand new single, and news of their next album.
‘Novocaine’ is the first taster of fourth full-length ‘POWER’, which is set to arrive on new album Virgin EMI on 24th January 2020. Debuted at Reading festival earlier this summer, you can check it out below.
Speaking of the single, frontman Sam McTrusty explains; “I wanted to force myself to be more honest and open. The song tells the story of the most intimate connection I’ve ever felt with someone else – when I first met my wife. That feeling of obsession taking over every thought and reason was almost like an addiction at the time. It embarasses us in some ways that we fell victim to such a cliched movie script love story, but equally amazes us that it ever happened.”
A press release describes ‘POWER” as “tapping into their LCD Soundsystem fandom” for eight tracks and two interludes.
McTrusty explains; “The album is inspired by colours, moods, memories. We just got into a room and started creating. The studio as its own instrument reached a new level – we created nothing outside those walls and it became a physical embodiment of the album itself. ‘POWER’ is our own example that there’s always a way forward when you are faced with limitations and red lights. It’s reignited our ambition and drive for what we can achieve. Hearing these songs, that’s what I feel and hear: power. And that’s what the last two years have made us feel as a band: totally empowered.”
