Memorial have shared their beautiful new song 'Moth To A Flame'.
The duo's hushed atmospherics have made them only the second signing to Real Kind Records, the imprint run by Lucy Rose.
The songwriter helps produce Memorial's new single, one that gives a shrewd glimpse of their capabilities.
'Moth To A Flame' is a soft, lingering return, matching gossamer Americana to those plaintive vocals.
Each segment interlocks perfectly, enacting a moment of peace that feels much-needed at this point.
The duo recall that the song was an "accident", explaining:
"This song was kickstarted by two random things; a book and a new tuning. Jack was travelling a lot and wanted something to read on his way home for Christmas, and bought Stig Dagerman’s A Moth To A Flame. He messed around with some open tunings to varying degrees of success. He never finished the book because it was left on a plane by accident after just a few chapters, but despite that it was probably bought to facilitate the starting of this song in the first place."
"It’s about wanting something so badly despite knowing it will hurt you but you accept the pain and live with it. We’d both been on a weird journey, emotionally, and could empathise with each other. It was almost a sort of joint therapy for us both, writing and finishing it."
