A week prior to the release of their new album ‘A Better Life’, Spring King released their new single ‘Paranoid’. With an array of synths, harmonies, drums and guitars, this track really differs from their usual sound. To quote the band themselves, this really is a ‘curveball’ from the music we are used to hearing from them.
Listening to the track is somewhat inspiring. Much like the rest of the album, lyrically this song displays feelings of uncertainty and anxiety felt within our society. Combined with heavy guitar riffs and an impressive selection of synths, I can’t help but feel that this song is a clear act of rebellion towards aspects of society. The elements that are out of our control, yet impose such feelings onto us.
‘Paranoid’, as well as several other tracks on the four piece’s new album, display an incredible powerful level of emotion and empathy within their music. This thought-provoking track has really connected with their fans and I am extremely excited to see what else the band has in store for us.
