NEWS: deary return with ‘The Moth’ their most striking single yet

‘The Moth’, is a brand new single by deary, their first new material since last year’s debut EP, and the first taste of a new EP release which will be out later this year on Sonic Cathedral.

Produced by the band with Iggy B (Spiritualized), ‘The Moth’  finds the London-based duo going through an appropriately titled metamorphosis; it’s shadowy and yet their most direct offering. Thick with a devouring atmosphere of shimmering guitars that flash like blades being unsheathed, underpinned by menacing bass lines and a striking breakbeat, this time it’s more Curve than Cocteau Twins that’s their influence. Dottie sings intoxicatingly about being drawn to things that aren’t good for us, ‘you could be my universe’ she emotes, like a moth flying too close to the light; it’s ripe with a foreboding and doomed love.

“We focused a lot on the rhythm and syncopation,” says the band’s Ben Easton. “It’s very dense and immediate, with little room to breathe which adds to the claustrophobia in the subject matter.”

“I wanted to write about being drawn to things which are not good for us,” clarifies singer Dottie about the song’s lyrics. “However, that fleeting feeling of immortality is too tempting to fly away from.”
