TUNE Abattoir Blues - Sense
"Noisy Brighton lot Abattoir Blues have thus far built their name on boozy live shows and unabashed wailing - on new track ‘Sense’, though, they’re turning heel.
Giving themselves room to breathe, it’s a more pensive number. Steadily building into a crushing noise, it’s a spiralling reimagining of their gloomy post-punk; one which perfectly reflects the track’s ruminations on the contradictory and inescapable cycle of depression. “A fundamental theme of the song is desperately trying to find clarity or rationality and both of those things feeling completely alien,” explains the band’s frontman Harry Waugh."
