Stanley Odd release a single, ‘Killswitch’.
The follow-up to ‘Night Rip’, the track is self-released via their own Handsome Tramp label, and their third track to be released from the band since lockdown began.
The band describe the song, produced by frontman Solareye along with Dunt, as “a heavy-lidded, singalong chorus, call to action… A doped-up narrator, dozing off and waking up, flits from topic to topic, through a litany of I’ve-seen-it-all-before global snapshots.”
“From deep fakes and drug abuse; to COVID-19, riots and social media obsessions; Brexit, infobesity and good will; to the unreality of a world seen through digital eyes – watching the Amazon on fire, on your Amazon Fire.
“’Killswitch’ is trying to start something,” they conclude. “It’s a paradox – a rousing call for change and action, in the most lackadaisical and laid-back way possible.”
The Edinburgh-based six-piece, who have played alongside the likes of like Arrested Development, De La Soul and Easy Star All-Stars, decided to release a brand new single every six weeks, with artwork for the series provided by Edinburgh-based illustrator, Mat Sinclair.
