Cola - Albatross (Official Music Video)

Photo credit: Amy Fort

Ahead of their forthcoming new album 'The Gloss', due June 14th, 2024, Cola, the Montreal band formed by ex-Ought members Tim Darcy and Ben Stidworthy alongside drummer Evan Cartwright, have shared their new single and video 'Albatross'. The track comes accompanied by a batch of UK tour dates for November, which are in addition to their UK tour this month (all dates below). Speaking ahead of the single, Darcy says of the track:"This song had a few lives before it took its final form. 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. 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." Take a listen for yourselves below.
