LibraLibra Release New Track “Mother’s Run” & Announce New EP “Cut” due 23rd March

New Single Features Saxophone Solo from Miles Spilsbury from The Physics House Band

March Tour Dates Announced

LibraLibra’s sound evolution is now to be demonstrated in grandiose new synth- and string- led single, “Mother’s Ruin”. Taken from their upcoming EP, Cut, the song is the first example of the brand new distillation of their chaotic sound into something more expansive and emotional, whilst still maintaining that DIY, punk-fuelled ethic.

Vocalist and lyricist Beth speaks about their inspiration for the track;

Mother’s Ruin’ was truly cathartic in helping me heal from past traumas I am still unravelling. I feel like I was speaking to my 15 year old self. The year when I lost all control & power over my body & as a means to survive I transcended above my body & bones & began floating up in clouds, watching life in slow motion.

Staples of the outspoken queer music scene in – where else – Brighton, Beth, Joe and Guy all met when they were playing in different bands, predominantly playing post rock. “When the band started we all wanted to do something entirely different to our previous projects,” explains Beth. 

“It wasn’t until very recently that we started to allow those post rock influences to start bubbling to the surface again.” These influences still abound today. “While “Mother’s Ruin” is definitely not a post rock song, the air of grandness, the tendency to build slowly and to burst forth with so much drama may be linked back to those much earlier influences and projects for the band.”

LibraLibra are easily one of the most vital outfits of our time, in our community, present in the scene. Their music elevated, their words moving. LibraLibra combines this proud testament of influences and this feast of vibrant rhythmic movements and immense textures, utilizing such colourful instrumentation with important and powerful lyrics. Merging meaning and movement as one, their new single is bound to impress with its striking appeal. A remarkable journey from start to finish, growing with this reflective intensity, moving on this treadmill of nostalgia,

Lyrically penning such intimate thoughts and presenting this expressive course meandering to this explosive, cathartic crescendo and ultimately this mammoth outcome, as the instrumentation gathers power and leads to the ferocious Saxophone solo. The musicians and Beth’s immense vocal range command your entire attention, hooked on this emotional journey, secured to embrace every variation of affection that resonates from the tones, textures, and weight of this incredible composition.

This track is nothing short of a masterpiece, a release that will stand the test of time and be a vessel to connect with so many at any given time.

The new EP excites us.
