HMS Morris return with brand new ‘Poetry’ single on Bubblewrap Collective 1st April 2020

Hot on the heels of the well-received Babanod, released in early February, HMS Morris are now pleased to present ‘Poetry’. It’s the second in a series of singles due for release in 2020, and will be available from April 1st on Bubblewrap Records. 

The song reflects the sliding scale of madness that results from unreciprocated obsessive love. Beginning with some light-hearted hypothetical quasi-stalking, singer Heledd Watkins then moves through self-criticism, recrimination, and finally a full-on banshee-wail of desperation. Structurally the music is indebted to Ravel’s Bolero, a repeating ostinato rising steadily from very quiet to very loud – although in ‘Poetry’, HMS cover twice the volume in half the time, in acknowledgement of the limited attention span of the snapchat generation.  

Poetry starts as a sultry and soothing journey before effortlessly captivating you into its epic momentous finale. Melodic vocals range throughout added with delicate echoes and slow-building instrumentation. Poetry resonates intently. A beautiful built composition perfectly layered with eclectic electronic notes and beats, illustrious collection of vocals building up throughout leading to the heightened finale which leaves you both in awe and needing more. Addictive pop at it’s best and commendably meritorious, this single hooks you with the harmonies.

Poetry will be available digitally from all the usual platforms.
