are pleased to announce the second single from Therapy’s, Crooked Timber album, ‘Exiles’, available to download from July 7th 2010.
Frontman, Andy Cairns, reveals some of the creative motivation behind the track: "
Exiles takes its lyrical inspiration from the famous ‘Earthrise’ photograph taken by astronauts, as well as the movies 'Dark Star' and 'Silent Running’.
The rhythmical drum patterns and deep bass-lines are influenced by dubstep act, ‘Cult of the 13th Hour’, while the chiming guitars echo the sound of a rotating musical jewelry box."
With influences from early 70’s science fiction classics, ‘Silent Running’, a film which depicts the near-extinction of all human life and the struggle of the few who fight to preserve it; and also John Carpenter’s tongue-in-cheek sci-fi film, ‘Dark Star - the spaced out Odyssey’, take these influences of fantastic imagery, apply it to a pounding track full of atmospherics and you have one amazing audio track...
