Another Sky share new single 'Swirling Smoke'

With their eagerly-awaited new album now less than a week away, Another Sky have dropped the final cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Swirling Smoke' comes accompanied by a stunning new video, directed by Darina, and follows on from the previously shared 'The Pain', 'Aimee Caught A Moth', 'Burn The Way', 'A Feeling', 'Psychopath' and 'Watching Basinski' in previewing their new LP 'Beach Day', which is out on the 1st March via Fiction Records.

Speaking about the new offering, the band's Catrin Vincent said, “as a teen, I used to go to this club called ‘The Colly’ to sit on this abandoned staircase and just scream. The music was so loud that nobody could hear me. I didn’t feel able to express frustration in real life, so it felt like the only place I could let it out without hurting someone else.

"Our second record is all about being heard, letting that anger come to light and dealing with it for the first time. Max made this electronic loop that reminded me of the last and only time I went to clubs, and I instantly laid down some piano chords and remembered being eighteen again. Everyone laid down their parts, then we all pieced together the song after that.

"The song itself is a mirror. “I see you” isn’t really about the other person, it’s about me. It’s about the realisation that everyone is an actor in each other’s plays from childhood, and that how you react says more about you than it does anyone else.”
