With Debris Discs, former Coves & Caves and My Side of the Mountain frontman and songwriter James Eary pulls out a different groove into his discographic hinge. A prodigiously bass-y, slight of hand charm for love and loss, James consorts his vocals to do more in an environment that settles none and brings out a new kind of shimmer.
‘We Never Die’ is a single in a string of songs that retains some of the characteristics seen in his other projects, but brightens in all of its revelry and harmonic comforts. A delightful promise upholds Debris Discs’ contention forward, and uses that woozy, ooey-gooey nougat, to assume stories of gentile recompense and inner review.
Inspired by a visit to Debris Discs’ grandparent’s memorial bench on a windswept day on the North West English coast, ‘We Never Die’ is an attempt to find comfort in the despair of loss.
Said James: “It tells the story of lifetime lovers so entwined they reach their end of days in tandem. They search for solace in the legacy they leave behind and a love that burns in perpetuity. It’s a message to each other and their families that this is not the end. There are no goodbyes.”
So far a highlight of empathy in music, Debris Discs handedly brings us all closer.
New song 'We Never Die' out now. It's a slice of blissed-out, woozy synth-pop inspired by a visit to my grandparent’s memorial bench on a windswept day by the seaside. Available in all the usual places. Enjoy. https://t.co/j5a4YZ3uS6
