A new era begins.
Thornhill have shared their first new music since the release of their 2019 album ‘The Dark Pool’, and it is not what you will be expecting.
The track is called ‘Casanova’ and finds the band expanding their atmospherically crushing sound to spaced-out and shimmering new plains. Aching melodies, planetary riffs and funk-riddled attitudes, it’s an exciting and exhilarating band from one of the best to do it. What comes next will be absolutely fascinating.
Vocalist Jacob Charlton had this to say about the song’s themes:
“’Casanova’ is about the extensively taxing experience of falling deeply for someone that you’re too afraid to completely grab onto. The kind of situation where you’re almost scared to love them and begin fixating on the little things you dislike about them or create stories in your head about them in order to keep your distance, so you don’t get hurt or hurt them.
“To match the mood of this track instrumentally, I decided to create a sort of 007 scenario, to match the vocal direction I was taking in order to get the point across without making this a sad track. I use the eyes of two agents that are stuck in a dance of death with orders to kill the other while assigned to the same case, they must choose whether or not to follow through with orders they don’t agree with.”
How ace is that?
