Lacuna Common have just dropped their new single ‘Window Pane’, which is taken from their forthcoming EP ‘It’s All Talk’, due for release in May.
“It’s a song about the feeling of that 'normal life', cleaning your car on a Sunday, keeping up appearances with your neighbours, doing the same routine week in week out, dreaming about ways your life could be different," explains lead singer Alfie Frank.
"You can see it isn’t for you and that you don’t want to end up like everybody else. There’s also a sense of knowing that the likelihood of this happening is very high and that it’s not at all a bad thing. After all, there’s still something cool in finding the romance in going shopping and locking eyes with a beautiful girl/boy and wondering what would come if you spoke to each other.”
‘Window Pane’ allows the Oxford four-piece to showcase their collective talents from fiery guitars, to a driving melodic bass line and acerbic lyricism.
