Sounds | Leprous, Running Low



De uit Noorwegen afkomstige progressieve band Leprous komt in augustus met het nieuwe album Aphelion en bracht onlangs in aanloop naar de release de nieuwe single Running Low uit. De bijbehorende video is hierboven te kijken. Leprous is op Running Low muzikaal weer sterk in het opbouwen van het nummer, dat start met een focus op de krachtige vocals van Einar Solberg. Het ontwikkelt zicht tot een muzikaal volle track met een filmisch gevoel, die de sfeer en spanning langzaam weet op te bouwen naar het einde en een refrein bevat die ongetwijfeld in je hoofd gaat zitten.

Einar Solberg over Running Low: “The initial idea for Running Low started when I had decided to force myself to write a sketch on my phone on a way up to a mountain top called Himingen in Telemark, Norway. It felt completely pointless while I was doing it, but when I came back, I was able to go further with it and actually structure it into a proper composition. Then we met up in Cederberg Studios together with the band to take it even further. This song is a proof that even the smallest sparks can turn into a big flame. Despite being a band who always wants to explore new territories, I believe Running Low can easily unite both our old and new fan base.

Aphelion staat gepland voor release op 27 augustus 2021 via InsideOutMusic.
