Boston Manor have released another song from their forthcoming album ‘Datura’ – ‘Inertia’.
Says vocalist Henry Cox of the meaning behind the track: “Inertia is a love song I wrote for my wife, the support of whom has guided me through some of the darkest times in my adult life. The partners of touring artists are often forgotten about. They have to spend months alone without the person they love whilst we fly around the world with our friends. They comfort us when we’re home sick, cheer us one when we win & console us when we lose. Often they can be a lifeline to our friends & family, a bridge back to the real world. To me, my wife is many things, home being one of them. This record is about a darkness in my life & the end of the album marks the exit from it. Without her that never would have been possible.”
‘Datura’ will be released 14 October via SharpTone Records and features the previously released ‘Passenger’ which delves into the record’s nighttime aesthetic with the kind of intense and unrestrained burst of an anthemic chorus for which the band have become known in recent years. The darkness, literally and metaphorically, is also exemplified with ‘Foxglove’ – the album’s crunching, catchy first single, released back in April.
