Dutch Wine release a new single, ‘Whisky’, on Negative Hope Records.
Available to download or stream, the track was recorded and mixed independently at both Dystopia Studios Glasgow and a home studio towards the end of 2020, later being mastered by Ben Brown at LaChunky Studios.
The band are Calvin Smith (lead vocals/bass), Christopher Devine (guitar/vocals), and Luc Grindle (drums/vocals) – who also records as Genke, having recently released single ‘Football‘.
It’s the fourth single from the Glasgow-based indie rock trio, and follows the band’s three singles to date, ‘Forgive’, ’Understated’ and ‘Goodnight’.
Guitarist Christopher Devine says of the new record: “Compared to our previous releases it’s definitely a bit softer and – at least from a guitar point of view – is much more orientated towards a pop vibe.
“In its developing stage we just nicknamed it ‘Whisky’,” he adds, “because it felt quite chill compared to the other songs and wanted to give the vibe of chilling out in an armchair sipping on some old whisky.”
Lead vocalist Calvin Smith adds: “it’s about about someone kind of falling apart at the hands of a broken relationship, feeling detached and relying on substances to even feel something.
“I wouldn’t say it’s very personal, I just tried to use emotions I’ve felt from break-ups but exaggerate it to a point where that idea of having to let go totally overcomes your day to day life.”
