Another Sky - Aimee Caught A Moth

Ahead of the band's forthcoming new album Beach Day, due out 1st March 2024 via Fiction (world excl North America) & Republic Records (North America), Another Sky have today shared their beautiful new bonus single Aimee Caught a Moth, a track that won't appear on the record itself. Explaining this decision, vocalist and lyricist Catrin Vincent says -“We weren't sure exactly how to announce the record. It felt like it needed more than words. And we've already released plenty of songs from it. So we gift to you a B-side, "Aimee Caught A Moth". This was one of the songs that fell through the net but one we still love.It's a very literal song written in the depths of lockdown, when my flatmate Aimee caught and released a moth from a cobweb. It felt incredibly significant and songworthy. Aimee is an incredible person and deserves a song.” In its pop perfected presence of 3 minutes, the track's soothing melodies and soft percussion showcase their blistering songwriting talents in fine detail as you' quickly get lost amongst it's spiralling layers. Continuing about the album Catrin adds, "We thought we'd finished our second record back in 2019 when we released I Slept On The Floor. But time is a complicated beast. And in the depths of lockdown, a completely new vision arose, one that we all knew we needed to follow instead.That vision was Beach Day. It's a story about moving through personal winters and finding the light. It's about acknowledging your whole self; your shadow side, your anger, your sadness… and learning to love those parts of yourself in order to move through it. We hope you can hear the beginnings of transformation in it." Take a listen for yourselves below.
