Singing the issues that may be so troublesome to say, The Lathums return with a brand new single, “Battle” the sincere and full-hearted opening monitor from their upcoming, second album, From Nothing To A Little Bit Extra. Placing the image of non-public fragility into the body of their advancing sonic capabilities and two-years-older, two-years-wiser grip on their band’s route, the monitor boosts the three-piece’s prowess as their era’s surging, profound songwriting pressure.

The one’s accompanying video strikes an autobiographical tone with singer and songwriter, Alex Moore delivering the music’s deep and significant lyrics alongside visions of his former self, looking for the second when innocence light and music arrived as salvation.

Now set for launch on Fri 3 March 2023 on Island Information, The Lathums’ follow-up to their massively profitable, 2021 debut album How Stunning Life Can Be comes loaded with, within the phrases of humbly gifted frontman Moore himself, extra of the ‘unhappy and unusual’ that arrived cloaked in upbeat jangle pop and festival-sized choruses first time round.

Leaving a door ajar for listeners to see into the twin catalysts of trauma and hope which have at all times powered The Lathums’ kitchen-sink-meets-main-stage, serotonin-flooded storytelling, the band’s newest launch finds a spot naturally beside tracks already lifted from From Nothing To A Little Bit Extra, together with the hovering and visceral Unhappy Face Childthe growling euphoria of Say My Identify and piano-led, heartbreaker, Turmoil.

Reflecting on one other large leap into the emotions that simmer beneath the floor, Moore says of writing Battle: “It’s about loss, somebody who has gone out of your life and has its roots in our early school days. Scott [Concepcion – guitars/piano] has a piano in his home and as much as that time I’d by no means had contact with the piano, however the extra we frolicked, the extra I performed round on it. That is the music that got here out of me and it’s been troublesome to point out folks up till now. It’s so private.”

Concepcion provides: “Alex in all probability wasn’t prepared to complete it till the album classes. He got here into the studio and added a great deal of new verses. He’d discovered the appropriate time.”
