Bristol-based rock trio Krooked Tongue have returned with their new single, “When The Beaches Bleed” today. The track, which follows their debut EP, No Vacancy Hotel, showcases the darker side the band in gritty guitar and moody vocals. An encroaching storm, bordering on the horizon of piercing toplines and the thundering baritone of the abyss; the track encapsulates the absurd fragility of life, personified in this story amongst the realm of big wave surfing. When The Beaches Bleed draws parallels between the harsh unforgiving nature of mavericks and that of a soundtrack to fill your soul with confidence, as you stare death straight in the eye.
Speaking about the upcoming single, vocalist and lyricist Oli Rainsford says, “Beaches, to me, is the ultimate homage to something I’ve always been in awe of. Big wave surfing is next level crazy and it’s an art that carries with it, high risk. This song is a tip of the hat but also, I think, doubles as a notion to not be scared to take risks and also not to fear failure. It’s a cosmic ‘fuck you, try it again’ that we often need to be encouraged to carry out. Confidence is key.”
