The title track “Black Matter” from Thus Owls’ upcoming EP is premiering today at Indie 88 . Of the song, the band explains: “This song started out when Stef [Schneider] sent us a drum riff. We chopped it up, looped it in different ways and wrote the song on top of it. Sometimes it’s so nice to get a head start in the creating process with a seed given from someone else. We had a longing to write a song with an odd but smooth melody over something sparse and harsh sounding underneath. The lyrics touch on the dynamics and waves you go through in relationships – where you’re sometimes in perfect sync, but sometimes one is at the top while the other one is at the bottom of the wave. This song is blue, like dusk just before the real dark.”
Thus Owls have announced the release of their new EP, Black Matter, out on November 6 via Secret City Records.
