Following on from last months return with their single Remoter Heaven, Welsh outfit Slate have today shared their latest cut, Shade In Me, taken from the band's forthcoming new EP entitled Deathless, out May 17th on Brace Yourself Records. Inspired by a speech from Chung Mong-hong’s film A Sun (2019), the track's soft opening soon dissipates in to a soaring crescendo of crashing guitars, towering vocals and a catharsis of explosive percussion. Vocalist Jack Shephard explains the track's ideas in more detail, "When someone needs refuge, you can offer them your shade. The song itself, ended up gentler in sound compared what we have been used to writing. Sentimental songs like this one can make you feel vulnerable. But perhaps that is appropriate for a song about opening up yourself for someone." Take a listen for yourselves below.
