TUNE Little Grim - Exit Light
"'Exit Light' - a highlight of the EP - cleverly evolved from a failed attempt at writing a love song. "I always cringe at my lyrics when they feel too cheesy," Joe explains. "It felt like there needed to be another darker message behind the song. At the time I was reading American Psycho, which took quite an influence on me. I wondered what love could be like from the perspective of Patrick Bateman."
The track sees sweet and punchy melodies and vocals contrast the more sinister lyrical themes of blood and manipulation; this duality perfectly encapsulating the emotionless, psychopathic tendencies portrayed at the root of the song. The gently upbeat, whimsical verse and chorus are almost mocking, and are punctuated with a hard-hitting, pop-punk style interim and a crashing guitar interlude, playfully hammering home the intensity of what lies beneath."
