Cola - Pulling Quotes

Photo credit: Amy Fort

Ahead of the release of their second LP The Gloss, due out June 14th on Fire Talk and Next Door Records in Canada, Cola have today shared the brilliant Pulling Quotes. Built on a hypnotic melody pattern, the track's teetering guitars and elongated rhythms are quick to draw you in to their spellbinding trance. Darcy says of the track: "Ben sent us this demo with music based on the melodic limitations of the Uilleann pipes, which he is learning to play (the bassline is mimicking the drone of the pipes). He and Evan then recorded a demo together that they were really happy with. I'll admit I wasn't drawn to it initially but they kept reiterating their enthusiasm for it. I finally sat down and wrote the whole vocal in one afternoon, pretty nearly in final form which rarely happens.Lyrically, it's a song about a relationship where two people are approaching each other like journalists, or perhaps even are journalists. The music is so bright and open I felt the lyrics needed to be a bit cheeky to match the tone. There is definitely some pathos, though, in the darkness of the bridge." Take a listen for yourselves below.
