Skinny Lister have released new single and video The Story Is… The title track of their forthcoming album due March 2019 on Xtra Mile Recordings, the single is the second from the new Long Player following 38 Minutes. Filmed in New York City, the video follows first-hand the perilous ascent of an urban explorer as she scales the Big Apple’s Williamsburg Bridge in the dead of night.
With a track dedicated to the Skinny Lister story on Beans On Toast’s new album, The Story Is… sees the band poetically sing about love and loss with words that will surely tug at the heart strings during this timely season of reflection. Speaking about the track’s themes, Skinny Lister say:
“Everyone has that someone or something, that to live without, would leave them incomplete. ‘The Story Is…’ is an ode to this state of complete dependence. An over-dramatic declaration of love, addiction, obsession and surrender.”
As with the rest of the upcoming long-player, The Story Is… was recorded, produced and mixed with the highly capable Barny Barnicott (Arctic Monkeys, The Enemy, The Temper Trap). In the deep, dark hours of one particular alcohol fuelled studio late night session, Barnicott introduced the band to an old piano and a set of pitched bells and tubes. Quickly striking upon the chiming soundscapes now available at their finger tips, the band began to get experimental with their electric guitars, uniquely marrying the two to create the entrancing, ethereal melody that defines the backdrop of this irresistible new single.
The Story Is… is out March 1st 2019 on Xtra Mile Recordings and can be Pre-Ordered HERE
