Blaenavon are back with “Catatonic Skinbag.” The new track — their first since the release of their debut album, That’s Your Lot — is a teaser of what’s to come on their upcoming LP #2, Everything That Makes You Happy.
Speaking on the track, frontman Ben Gregory says, “The song is about isolation, cutting oneself off from the world to engage in fruitless sensual pleasures and pretending everything is ok.” There is hope, however, as Gregory adds that “there’s a way out. Art, friendship, love. You don’t have to be a catatonic skinbag.”
Listen to “Catatonic Skinbag” below. If you’re in the UK, you can catch Blaenavon live in May (tour dates).
