Today, LA-based band Kills Birds have shared their new single “Glisten“, the second offering from their upcoming, second album Married, out via their new label home Royal Mountain Records and KRO Records on 12th November. The new album was recorded at Dave Grohl‘s Studio 606 by invitation of the man himself, and produced by Yves Rothman.
Vocalist Nina Ljeti says of this single: “This song is about loving the wrong people. It was written after I experienced a profound betrayal, at the hands of a person who was unable to take accountability for their actions. The lyrics in the chorus (why don’t you love me) are directed at the person in question. In retrospect, they’re also questions I need to ask myself.”
Guitarist Jacob Loeb adds: “Glisten was written to kind of feel like water. The chorusing, arpeggiating guitar melodies and the rolling, steadily intensifying rhythm section throughout the verse are meant to kind of create a sensation of floating in a river—like being gently lead by a force of nature that lures you somewhere turbulent and dangerous—the chorus with its angular, sharp and aggressive instrumentation.”
