UK alternative pop four-piece Alvarez Kings has just released a new single entitled “Words I Couldn’t Say” via Sire Records.
Simon Thompson comments about the track: “The song came about when I was turning our spare room at home into our baby’s nursery as the acoustics were awesome. I was writing songs off of the back of some pretty extensive touring over the years.
“There were definitely some issues with alcohol and substance abuse as a result, which impacted heavily on relationships. It’s not necessarily an autobiography or about one person in particular. It’s a story of an uncontrollable collision course of self-destruction from drug and alcohol abuse, the desolation of a failed relationship, and self-blame. ‘Words I Couldn’t Say’ is the burden of the truth and a lie that is too heavy to carry.”
Behind the heavy production, these boys have created a track with some substance. It’s all in the lyrics reflecting on an uncontrollable collision course of self-destruction from drug and alcohol abuse, the desolation of a failed relationship and self-blame. There’s a Latin feel coming from the picked acoustic guitar – combine that with the dance backing and you have a great track for the summer.
