Complex of arrangement and contemplative of lyric, ‘The Saying Of The Seers’ is a brooding and atmospheric addition to Non Canon catalogue fitting of the troubled times we find ourselves in.
Though written well over a year ago, its themes of isolation, routine and their impact on our mental health are unsettlingly resonant today.
“‘The Saying of the Seers’ is a song about the long, slow winter routine” says Barry. “Of waking up before the sun rises, and trudging home after it has set. It’s about how the days and nights blend into one as you stare at the calendar waiting for the clocks to change. It’s about losing sight of the fact that it will, eventually, get better.”
