Mayflower Madame - Indie Music Contest April 2020
'Vultures' was one of the first songs we wrote for the new album. We instantly liked the combination of the insistent, driving beat with the swirling, hypnotic guitars. It was all done rather quickly, piece by piece just seemed to fall into place naturally. I guess the song again shows our roots in post-punk and psychedelia while also bringing in something new compared to our previous stuff. Lyrically, 'Vultures' is about desire, gluttony and vanity - both on a personal level and as a general symptom of the excesses of modern society. However, there's a sense of both doom and revival in there. It's partly inspired by the art of George Grosz and Hieronymus Bosch.
