East London indie risers Human Interest return with new single ‘Step On’.
The band caught attention with last year’s debut EP ‘Desire Paths’, matching sonic urgency to some wonderful lyrics. Since then, they’ve coalesced around a four-piece line up and played shows across the land, taking their message to whoever wants to hear it.
New single ‘Step On’ opens a fresh chapter, with their second EP slated to land this Autumn through Nice Swan Records.
Out now, the new single is a barbed slice of indie rock, all incisive PIXIES-esque guitar lines and searing vocals. Reminiscent in places of labelmates English Teacher, it has a character of its own – Human Interest aren’t about to follow in anyone’s path.
In a note, the band comment:
“It’s about appreciating the duality of yourself and your friends as it’s what makes us human. The phrase ‘this philosophy goes away’ refers to trusting the passage of time; that thoughts and feelings are momentary, and there’s a beauty in trusting your gut and allowing your inner-self to guide the way.”
In London this week? Catch Human Interest at the Shacklewell Arms tonight (August 15th).
