Statues return with “Agony”. The single is the first new music from the Swedish alternative rock group since their 2020 album ’Holocene‘, and the first taste of Statues’ upcoming third studio album “Black Arcs Rising”. “Agony” Is a cover of Yung Lean and Yung Gud‘s track from 2017. The single is recorded in Svenska Grammofonstudion, produced and mixed by Christian Ramirez, and released via Lövely Records on all streaming platforms together with a music video.
Statues on “Agony”:
Yung Lean’s song Agony is a both beautiful and sad great tune, with spaced out lyrics. The nice melodies were taken from the strange piano to guitars and we played it at a high tempo. It felt important to choose a cover whose style is far from ours, and we succeeded quite well with that. We wanted the song to sound like it was written in 1991 by Archers of Loaf or Seam.
“Agony” is out now on all streaming platforms together with a music video. The album ’Black Arcs Rising‘ will be released in May 2023.
