Leprous Share Experimental New Track “Alleviate”
“Below,” the first single from Leprous’s forthcoming album, Pitfalls, saw the band branch out a bit with string arrangements and electronic elements. The album’s newest single, “Alleviate,” which dropped this morning, continues in a more experimental direction, albeit in a different way than the former (although it once again features strings). It still sounds like Leprous, of course, just a new evolution of the band that’s decidedly more chill and introspective.
Vocalist and keyboardist Einar Solberg comments on the track:
“’Alleviate’ is a very important song to me. It carries hope within the melancholy. Not only is it one of, if not the most accessible tune we’ve ever done, but it also carries a deeper message. No doubt it for some will be a controversial track considering where Leprous started, but that’s what Leprous is all about: Moving forward! Also we couldn’t be happier about the amazing piece of visual art done by the extremely talented video director Troll Toftenes”.
Pitfalls comes out on October 25 via InsideOutMusic; pre-order here.
