The Blinders share final album track ‘Black Glass’

Words: Sam Geary 

The Blinders have shared their latest, and final, new track from their upcoming album 'Fantasies Of A Stay At Home Psychopath' (out July 17 via Modern Sky UK).

‘Black Glass’ builds from a sparse and foreboding blend of bass, drums and ruminative vocals, into a powerful frenzy of distorted guitars.

The track is accompanied by an absorbing lyric video, with a surreal and hypnotic montage of historic footage serving to capture the existential dread that the world faces today.

“This song is about a disturbed introvert's conversation between him and himself, whose need for isolation has reached its peak,” explain the band. “No longer does he simply keep the blinds drawn to appease his twisted and paranoid appetite, for slowly he begins to talk through his methods in order to reassure himself that his actions are completely sane.

“As the monologue unravels, his words become more and more deranged and unhinged until finally his nerve implodes. He is left alone with his cyclone of self-righteous, existential rambling thoughts around his mind.”
