Octopus Montage unleash a beast of a new single – ‘A Shortcut (To The Unconscious Mind) taken from their forthcoming album ‘How To Live And How To Lose’
Written based on past experiences, vocalist Alex Jennings expresses the difficulty of enduring the issues ‘so tell me how do I lie to make myself feel better on the inside’. Also expressing emotions such as guilt after coming out of an issue and having made loved ones lives extremely difficult due to the issues, ’Why don’t you fucking hate me when all this pain has come from me’, creating a 360° picture of issues that can sometimes be seen as two-dimensional.
Quick fire guitars and blackened vocals give this track a chaotic feel. Some great growling this track has a cracking break down. For a young band these guys sound extremely confident together and make one hell of a racket.
