Lonely Robot, the project masterminded by producer, guitarist and singer/songwriter John Mitchell (Kino, Frost, Arena, It Bites) have released the video for new single ‘Spiders’ which is taken from their fourth album ‘Feelings Are Good’ out on the 17th July 2020 via InsideOutMusic.
John Mitchell has the following to say about this song: “’Spiders’ is a song about a woman, nay wolf in sheep’s clothing, who chose a path of greed and wretchedness and exploited her position of trust at a time of weakness when she could have done the exact opposite. Long since gone but never forgotten for all the wrong reasons.”
‘Feelings Are Good’ marks sort of a fresh start following the conclusion of the ‘The Astronaut Trilogy’ as John explains: “‘Feelings Are Good’ is a bit of a departure from the first three Lonely Robot albums. On ‘Feelings Are Good’, I wanted to explore more personal themes and the songs are very much about individual experiences and narratives that I believe had been the cornerstones, good and bad, to my life. The long tall and short of it is that we’re back on planet Earth, and I have a personal lyrical axe to grind!”
Jarring piano chords, space sounding guitars and Peter Gabrie-esque singing intelligent lyrics make this an interesting slice of prog. Theres elements of jazz especially in the drumming and the interlude featuring a fantastic guitar solo which takes on a life of its own.
