The track, ‘PARTY ON MY DEATHBED’ premiered on Clara Amfo's BBC Radio 1 show this evening. The track fizzes with life but is ultimately powered by a sense of reckless abandon. Shifting upwards through sonic gears to deliver an open-armed and iconoclastic party anthem that pays no attention to the idea of tomorrow, residing firmly and resolutely in the here and now.
A track forged in the fiery debauchery of backstage areas and late-night bars it combines the band’s love for electronic beats, synthesised melodies and hard riffs, resulting in a sound that echoes The Prodigy as much as it does Paramore.
Co-vocalist Han Mee deviously welcomes “lovers of the night, haters of the daylight, come one come all” to unite behind the track that firmly encourages freak flags to fly freely, and invites all listeners to adopt a norm of non-compliance, a dedication to deeds of defiance and to be comfortable in the unconventional. Commenting further on the track, Han Mee shares:
"We can’t be helped, we just wanna squeeze out every morsel of this life and being a bit of a wreckhead has come hand in hand with the pursuit of fun. Can’t be stopped, don’t wanna be stopped, we’re sorry but we’re not, maybe we’re just lost. Who cares, life’s about connection n getting off the fuckin internet n losing ur mind on the streets of Manny and finding it again on your way home.”
A CALL TO THE VOID is the English translation of the French phrase l’appel du vide, referring to the brain’s trick of spotting opportunities to die. It’s the eerie jolt that is felt when you stand waiting for a train and the thought that you could jump, and end your life in a heartbeat, intrudes in your head. It’s that brief moment of being reminded of the fragility of existence.
The more alt-pop inspired ‘Bloodstream’, meanwhile, was made for creating moments on the big stages the band have always aspired to reach. The most important thing for the band, however, is that these songs are written to scream from the speakers of the stage, and for their refrains to be screamed back at them by the adoring, tight-knit community they’ve built. “Live is where I’m happiest, live is where it’s home,” says Han. “We wrote songs with the intention of people going off, making you feel good, opening the pit up, letting go, crying, getting on your mate’s shoulders. It’s church for us.”
