Sorry Share New Single ‘Key To The City’

"It’s meant as a kind of tender 'fuck you' at the dying moment of a relationship..."

Sorry have shared new single ‘Key To The City’.

The avant-pop group continue their experimental whims on incoming album ‘Anywhere But Here’, the latest in the band’s packed catalogue. Out on October 7th, it follows the excellent work on last year’s ‘Twixtustwain’ EP.

Released on Domino, the incoming album is trailed by new single ‘Key To The City’, which seems to reflect Sorry’s sonic potpourri. A song with a sting in its tail, Asha comments:

“‘Key to the City’ is a song that stemmed from a very specific situation in my life but that I hope has a more universal resonance. It’s meant as a kind of tender ‘fuck you’ at the dying moment of a relationship you don’t necessarily want to end – when it’s hard to reconcile feelings of anger, jealousy, resentment etc with the undeniable love you still have for that person. That crossover of pride and vulnerability led me to an image of a deer in the headlights. It’s about trying your hardest to retain control when you know you’re exposed emotionally, sexually, spiritually, everything. In the nude of the headlights, in the nude of someone’s love.”

She continues: “The song came together after the original recording session and stemmed from Louis experimenting with new tunings to give us a bit of a push. This one has a Nick Drake feel. We wanted it to sound cinematic and lonely.”

A FLASHA directed video accompanies the track – tune in now.
