Battle Lines releasing ‘Primal’ on No Sleep (stream “Wildlife”)
Back in 2014, Leeds band Battle Lines released a 7" on No Sleep, and now they're set to release a new full length, Primal, on September 16 via the label. (It's only being released digitally, and it's available for pre-order here and here.) We're premiering the new single "Wildlife," which is a nice dose of shiny, moody dream pop. Here's what the band tells us about it:
Wildlife came from an idea Luke and I penned in my room. Musically it’s represents a lighter part of the album and for me it was a turning point lyrically. We wrote it toward the end of the album sessions, the record charts a tough period of time culminating in a destructive relationship. Wildlife marked the moment in the writing process where I realised that I’d moved on, and all that anger no longer weighed so heavily on my shoulders. Its essence comes from the things that start so well but slowly turn toxic; however hard you try to take it back to the magic of when it started, some things should be left to rest.
