Norwegian Rock outfit Leprous have released their first single ‘Running Low’ taken from their upcoming studio album ‘Aphelion’, out 27th August 2021 via InsideOut Music.
Vocalist/keyboardist Einar Solberg comments:
“The initial idea for “Running Low” started when I had decided to force myself to write a sketch on my phone on a way up to a mountain top called “Himingen” in Telemark, Norway. It felt completely pointless while I was doing it, but when I came back, I was able to go further with it and actually structure it into a proper composition. Then we met up in Cederberg Studios together with the band to take it even further. This song is a proof that even the smallest sparks can turn into a big flame. Despite being a band who always wants to explore new territories, I believe “Running Low” can easily unite both our old and new fan base.”
Cinematic rock with stark piano and swooning cello as Solberg bellows out the vocal line. This orchestral epic fuses dynamic stringed instruments with huge rock drums and industrial rock noises giving a creepy nervy feeling. There’s so much going on within its 6 minutes that you can’t help but listen to again.
