Lunacre – Schtum

It’s been an age since we’ve heard from Lunacre, but we’re very pleased to report that they’ve lost none of their sheen in the time away. Today we premiere Schtum, the latest indie cut from the UK five-piece (and also the name of their upcoming EP on 14 October). It starts with a sample and distorted guitar, before course-correcting into a melancholic, moving little number that reflects a period of change and adjustment following the departure and replacement of a founding member, and also about ‘trying to make sense of the past whilst single-handedly juggling with a future paved with anxiety’.

Say the band about the track: “The guitar and vocal parts came together during a hiatus from rehearsals while drummer JP was away. Not wanting to stall, we decided to create a Frankenstein’s monster of a percussion part by chopping up drum takes from other songs before playing along on pots and pans.

Check it out below, and don’t forget you can come and see Lunacre for free at our PressPLAY OK #Blogtober night in London (more details here).
