Listen :: Another Sky - Avalanche
Words: Ellie Ward
Ahead of their appearance at Bushstock festival this Saturday, London quartet Another Sky release their evocative new single ‘Avalanche’.
Following their debut EP 'Forget Yourself', underneath 'Avalanche's undulating percussion, fluid electronic lines and rousing vocal, its lyrics hit out at toxic masculinity.
“Avalanche speaks of the toxic masculinity that bleeds into every other form of oppression, that causes white men with badges to shoot black men without, that causes women to live their lives in fear, that causes men themselves to live in fear,” explains frontperson Catrin Vincent. The song is heavily inspired by Tracy Chapman and her frank yet poetic accounts of injustice, and aligns itself with the current #metoo movement.
