Sorry - Cigarette Packet / Separate
Catalogue No.: RUG1218
Release Date: 7th May 2021
This is the first new music to emerge from Sorry since releasing their sensational debut album ‘925’ on Domino last year. ‘Cigarette Packet’ and ‘Separate’ were coproduced with James Dring (Gorillaz, Jamie T, Nilüfer Yanya) and finds the band delving back into a more
experimental, cut-and-paste electronic palette harking back to their beloved Home Demo/ns visual mixtapes, all the while still coursing with their signature gnarled sensitivity.
Speaking about the new single, Lorenz said, “These songs came from ideas we worked on from home during last year. The sounds are quite metallic / silver / grey and the lyrical ideas are repetitive almost as if they are whispers / mantras/ worries that you’d say to yourself and keep to yourself.”
With recent personal influences as wide ranging as Micachu and the Shapes, Cindy Lee and Stevie Moore to Arca’s ‘Stretch 2’, Sorry’s experimental and holistic approach marks them out as a thoroughly 21st Century band; from their open-minded approach to genre to their creativity allowing them to self-produce the music and direct accompanying videos. Qualities more present than ever before at the start of this next exciting chapter with ‘Cigarette Packet’ and Separate’.
Available to independent retailers on 7” black vinyl into white paper inner sleeve and digital download card.
