New Entry: Gunke Share New Single "Mum"

Glasgow indie rock/alt band Gunke (lead by Luc Grindle) have shared their new single "Mum".

The song is out now through via Glasgow DIY label Negative Hope Records. Get it here.

‘Mum’ follows on from previous single ‘Football’ channeling that coarse 00’s guitar sound, displaying a real penchant for early era The Cribs.

Grindle comments on the track: “’Mum’ is all about finding yourself in a position you are unable to escape from and requiring to see difficult situations through to the end. Despite the more pessimistic lyrical content, I wanted to create something more optimistic for the lyrics to sit on top of."

“‘Mum’ was a good release of energy to write during a frustrating and confusing time, it helped me understand what was going on in my life so became a very positive piece to create despite the less hopeful lyrics.”

The song is taken from their forthcoming second album 'A Way Forward', set to be released on November 5th. Pre-order your copy here.

Speaking about it, songwriter/vocalist Ian Devaney said: "After I dropped out of college I spent a number of years delivering pizzas and waiting tables while I lived at home and tried to get a music career going. One ends up spending a lot of time contending with unrealized dreams and feeling jealousy towards those who have moved on. There’s an inferiority complex that can set in, which if unchecked, can lead down a pretty bitter and self-destructive road. This is a song for driving down that road, as indecision and longing and regret cycle together into mania, until finally, at the end, quiet acceptance and peace wash over."

"As for the recording itself…For those later movements, we messed around with tape machines, running things at different speeds and sometimes backwards, talking about William Basinksi’s ‘Disintegration Loops’ and trying to see how we could achieve a similarly somber, ethereal ambiance, but in a comparatively very small space. This one in particular serves as a good example of how, on the album as a whole, we wanted to find a balance between steady motorik endlessness and more spacious ambient moments." He added
