Following on from their previous releases, Only Monsters and A Fog Of Feeling, which formed Chapter 1 of their serialised album release, Wars have now introduced us to Chapter 2 of A Hundred Shivers, with new single Murmurs, out today.
Vocalist Rob Vicars explains, “‘Murmurs’ is really about feeling drowned out by the noise in your head; the fight to not feel swept away by a storm of self-defeating thoughts. It’s a strange time to be releasing new music, with the world trying to juggle a pandemic while also standing up to one of the greatest injustices in history, something that seems so insurmountably woven into our societal structures.
“At times like this, it is easy to fall below the waves, to let those self-defeating thoughts take over and drown out any positivity. If there’s a chance this track could be a foothold for anyone struggling, a sign that others feel this too, then it is worth it being out there.”
Watch the lyric video for Murmurs:
A Hundred Shivers is being produced by Matt O’Grady, who has also worked with Architects, Don Broco, Deaf Havana, and You and Me at Six and will be released next year.
We recently caught up with Rich and Sam of Wars to find out how they’re coping in lockdown – you can watch the video here.
