Alt-rock darlings Another Sky return after a three-year absence from the spotlight. Their long-awaited single “Psychopath” is a far more punchy and direct rock song than anything from their 2020 debut record, “I Slept On The Floor”. The new track comes served with a raw acoustic B-Side “Watching Basinski”, recorded in their bedrooms during lockdown.

“Most of our upcoming music is pretty influenced by music from the late 90s and early 00s. So releasing an A-Side and B-Side felt like a good way of paying homage to the era we grew up in.” says lead singer Catrin Vincent.
On the songs themselves, Vincent comments “They reflect a really personal journey. I usually hate writing lyrics about myself, but during lockdown, it was the only thing I had to write about. I was so surprised to find multitudes of grief and sadness disguised as anger. Psychopath captures the angriest I’ve ever felt. For years, I felt like that rage could never be voiced.
On the B-Side Catrin adds “Watching Basinski captures the grief that lies underneath that anger. That’s what our new music is trying to convey; the human journey from fear and anger through to love and acceptance.”
In their three year absence, the band (Vincent, Jack Gilbert, Naomi Le Dune & Max Doohan) have not only been writing and producing new music, but have built a brand new studio from scratch in the crypt of a Church. More info to follow on that new music soon.
The news of their return came with an announcement of their signing to Republic Records in the US. “Who knew a song in 5/4 timing would get you signed to a US major label?” quips Vincent. The band continues to work with Fiction Records in the rest of the world.
