Copenhagen band Reptile Youth have released their track called “Clouds” – which they are giving away – [download link below] – right before their official “Structures” single is released next week.
Clouds has icy bites of sound and clean efficient vocals.
The intriguing lyrics build into a web of gnashings – and the sounds grow immeasurably – as the piece expands with joy.
The single “Structures” is taken from their latest record ‘Rivers That Run For A Sea That Is Gone’, and in just over 4 minutes it manages to present all the musical attributes only a great band can deliver.
The song consists of the post-Libertines brittleness, the “old” Arctic Monkeys’ edgy authenticity and an ambitious and airy outro resembling the likes of Arcade Fire. No part of this song is left un-thought through.
From start to finish, it’s a masterfully crafted vibrant indie piece.
Reptile Youth lead vocalist Mads says:
“The life that most of us are building seems to tie us to the ground, literally… Or to other things that make us so incredibly inflexible. We feel safe in the small systems that we make. Sometimes, however, they feel very limiting.”
Structures will be available for sale and download from 8th September.
