Off kilter track from new EP

The Summer War are continuing their campaign for new EP ‘Cult of You’ with single (and video) number three in as many months.

Guitarist and vocalist David Ciaramella explains how this fits in with the rest of the EP; “This song definitely maintains the dark vibe that spans the rest of the EP. We spent quite a while layering this track, building that eerie feel. We put real effort into making this track stand out by building it around these big, sweeping choruses and weird, slightly off-kilter verses. 

Bassist and vocalist Tom Farr expands; “This is probably my favourite track off the record. It takes elements from everything we wanted to do on the EP, but also has its roots in stuff we’ve done in the past. It has the broader soundscape to it where we spent a lot of time layering effects and building an atmosphere, but still has the big, almost anthemic-style choruses from bands and songs we took influence from when we first started out as a band. I think if you were to sum up the sound if this EP with one track, this would be it, and whatever we do next will most likely branch off from this style of song”. 


All three members agree that this song “makes up the backbone of this record”, and while it’s densely layered and complex, it’s still only the sum of its parts. Those parts being a collection of simple riffs and effects built up to create a grandiose, sweeping song.


The band have spent the past 18 months honing their skills, securing major support slots alongside the likes of The Dear Hunter, Chunk! No, Captain Chunk!, The Swellers, Roam, Grumble Bee, Oceans Ate Alaska, Electric Six and regular touring throughout the year. There are even bigger things on the horizon for 2016.
