Cola Release New Single ‘Albatross’

    Cola have released a new single, ‘Albatross’, which is lifted from their upcoming album The Gloss. It follows previous offerings ‘Pallor Tricks’, ‘Bitter Melon’, and ‘Keys Down If You Stay’. Check it out via the accompanying video below.

    “This song had a few lives before it took its final form,” the band’s Tim Darcy explained in a statement. “We played a much faster version on some later Deep in View tours with different lyrics. When we eventually got to the studio we revisited Ben’s original demo and decided to slow it down and re-introduce a heavier feeling.”

    “I then had a spark of inspiration and completely rewrote the lyrics, which center around “an albatross” – something that greatly hinders accomplishment,” he continued. “From there I started thinking about a horse race and perhaps some trainer watching a slow motion replay to try identify what’s wrong with an animal’s stride, hence the chorus.”

    The Gloss is set to arrive June 14 through Fire Talk and Next Door Records in Canada.
