Track: Legss – ‘Fester’
Exploring new boundaries in their latest exposed melody has unlocked a new side to the London four-piece, drifting apart from their previous heavy art-rock chapter. In this latest single, we experience unfamiliar rhythms and a whimsical vision for Legss. They’ve also just signed to State 51.
What They Said: “Fester was the first song we wrote for the EP and it’s probably still the best. It was sort of like a stepping stone: writing it enabled us to write the rest. It’s a lot more vulnerable than anything we’ve done before, and it opened us up to melody in a way we’ve previously tried to avoid. The lyrics were written in the summer, when you’re sun-drunk and romantic, and the buses look like they’re kissing as they cross each other, and everyone’s got a cold sore. But beneath all the sunny games there’s a bittersweet desire to be someone or something else, which was how we felt musically at the time. Everything’s different now though, of course.”
