The track was conceived during an attempt to make a pumpkin pie in his home in Bristol whilst Ed’s thoughts were “all over the place – A lot of change was going on in my life and my head was such a jumble that I kept forgetting ingredients.” The result was an “inedible, salty pumpkin pie” but a song that perfectly captures a tumultuous time of life.

FINN ANDREW’s Of The Veils Releases New Single From Upcoming Solo Album

“It’s a lot more autobiographical than I intended,” says Finn on the new album. “The last Veils records had a lot of writing from other perspectives but this one has a lot less of that and a lot more from… well, from me I guess. It’s always been personal, so it’s a different way of getting at the same thing, I suppose. Honestly I don’t exactly know why it’s different this time, or why these songs have a different feeling, but they do.”

“Give You Up” curls from spacey and sparse verses into hypnotic hooks upheld by his dynamic range. Meanwhile, the grainy visual taps into a retro spirit with its washed-out filters, Polaroid-style burns, and organic flavor. It just scratches the surface for JUTES.

GRAVEDGR Issues a Heavy Halloween Warning on New Track “Be Wary”

In true heavy-hitting style, GRAVEDGR returns to Carnage’s Heavyweight Records with a sinister warning via his new track “Be Wary.” GRAVEDGR takes on the challenge of merging elements of hardstyle, hip-hop and bass music on the new track, and he succeeds with the ease of a veteran. The screeching synths and brassy basslines provide a bone-chilling backdrop to the track’s only vocal riff, when a warped baritone growls “be wary ‘cause you’re walking through my cemetary.” One would be remiss not to notice the proximity of the “Be Wary” release and All Hallows Eve, an occasion where many believe ghosts come out to haunt their graveyards and those who disturb them. If you have any plans to visit a cemetery for some Halloween fun this year, “Be Wary” may convince you otherwise.
