Sharptooth releaset nieuwe single ‘the gray’

Op 10 juli brengt de band Sharptooth zijn vierde album uit. Transitional Forms gaat deze heten en wordt uitgebracht via Pure Noise Records. De nieuwe single ‘The Gray’ , die ook op dit album komt te staan, kan je hier beluisteren. 

Lauren Kashan over ‘The Gray’

“I’ve always seen ‘The Gray’ as the emotional and conceptual turning point of the entire record, and arguably the most important song on it” zegt zangeres Lauren Kashan. “Over the years, I’ve noticed how uncomfortable people are with nuance; whether that be in public discourse or personally. It doesn’t help that so many facets of our culture are presented in binaries: “You’re ‘woke’ or you’re ‘cancelled’. You have depression, or you don’t. You’re a man, or you’re a woman. You’re a Democrat or you’re a Republican”.

Ze vertelt verder: “But nothing in the world or in ourselves is absolute, and nothing changes when we are only acknowledging constructs as black or white and utterly immutable. True progress can only happen when we make a decision to step outside of this way of thinking, and explore nuance. So what’s ‘The Gray’ about? It’s about the search for and discovery of a world beyond binaries, beyond textbooks, beyond diagnoses, beyond red or blue.

Further It’s about the power we unlock when we make that discovery. It’s about neuroplasticity, and the ability of each and every one of us to change our minds, both conceptually and literally. It’s about the ways that I have intentionally destroyed so many of these constructs in my life, so as to reshape my own existence, and rewire the very neuronal pathways inside my own brain. I hope it inspires others to find that power within themselves, because I believe that when we embrace the grey areas in life and in ourselves is where we can finally begin to cultivate real and tangible hope”.
