Rising Pop Band Erthlings Reveals Their Brand New Single “Irrational” Featured along with official music video
The new single ‘Irrational’ hits multiple strides for the still-enviably-young group at once – simultaneously their most high budget and mature songwriting excursion to date. Channeling the cinematic, reverbed-out romanticism of Beach House or Hatchie, Erthlings tread the line between ethereal shoegaze, shimmering dream pop, and contemporary alt-pop, lead singer Issy Lowe’s pensive vocals floating through a sea of textural guitars.
Erthlings have never sounded as together as they do on ‘Irrational’as if the four individual members exist as part of the same whole. Now, as the four-piece prepare to graduate high school and launch themselves into a world of pandemics, recessions, and uncertainty, their latest single acts as the opening statement to the next phase of their career, cooly affirming confidence that Erthlings’ timeless songwriting will remain.
Bottling the adriftness of a clouded mental state, of not knowing what to do, say, or how to feel, ‘Irrational’ shakes off the anxieties of an unknowable future with easy grace. ‘Irrational’ sits in the current moment, acknowledges it, and then strives to move beyond, an invaluable and often under-acknowledged perspective from those whose lives will be shaped most by current global upheaval.
Of the track, the band share that, “Irrational is about feeling like you’ve overreacted in a situation and acknowledging that you took things the wrong way and we wanted to portray the range of emotions and thought processes that accompany these experiences. As 2020 progresses we feel ‘Irrational’ is a strong reflection of how many people feel today, including us as we attempt to finish high school during a pandemic! During this difficult and stressful time, we’ve been lucky enough to be able to produce a video (with the help of an amazing team!) that reflects the emotions carried throughout the song and also shows the more energetic and playful side of us as a band. We’re so incredibly proud of the song and video and we can’t wait for people to see it!”.
