Here’s what he had to say about the track:
“It came as a trapped sound in a Boss delay pedal box. Someone at the factory must’ve been humming in the right direction at the right time, the waves slipped through and the cardboard door sealed behind them. It journeyed over sea and land, benumbed by fear until I freed it from its torture and gave it a home (I think that’s how sound works right?) It was one of the first songs I wrote for Kagoule. I think I was 15. After the initial “Check out what this pedal can do” it hasn’t changed much, apart from the fact Lucy won the rights to sing it from me over a heated Beyblade tournament.”
The wistful number is somewhat of a departure to some of Kagoule’s previous material such as jagged grunge-pop number ‘Glue’.
‘Urth’ will be released through Earache Records on August 21st and will be preceded by several UK dates.
