Track: Slate – ‘Tabernacl’
The Cardiff four-piece join hands with Brace Yourself Records to release their debut haunted single, comprised of volcanic builds and gothic landscapes. The track bleeds of an emotional journey between anxiety battles and dealing with regrets, so for a band that have just entered their early twenties, it’s a deep one.
What They Said: “The aim was to transport people to a definitive place through the music, similarly to how The Cure do on ‘a Forest’. That midnight drive seemed to perfectly capture the feeling of dread. Whilst the first half of the song is characterised by regret, I relate the second half to confession. And with confession comes a relief which I think is embodied in the music. It was these types of connotations surrounding repentance that led to the song being titled ‘Tabernacl’.”
