VIDEO NEWS: Boston Manor Release Music Video For New Single ‘Carbon Mono’
Boston Manor have released their new single Carbon Mono, their first track released via SharpTone Records.
The anthemic track marks the start of a new chapter for the band, with vocalist Henry Cox saying of the track: “This song is a conversation that sort of goes back & forth between two people. It’s about people’s unwillingness to change & acknowledge our own shortcomings. It’s a classic Boston Manor tune that we wrote for people to rage to live. We’re so excited to be back playing shows & we just wanted to have something to play that people could blow off some steam to.”
Discussing the lyrics of Carbon Mono, Cox continues: “My lyrics aren’t ‘political’ but they are about the alienation I began to feel from the common person on the street, an alienation magnified by the way the world has reacted to Covid and the lockdown, and the George Floyd murder… Isolation, anxiety, dread…”
Recorded at Stustustudio, guitarist Michael Cunniff describes the writing session for the single as “the most joyful writing sessions we’d ever had”. He adds: ““I realised that, as awful as that dark period in 2020 had been, it was also a blessing in disguise. We’d changed labels, and we wanted to try new things, and we had this space to do something different. We weren’t exhausted from ten months on the road.”
