The Line of Best Fit
The globetrotting psychedelic indie outfit REPTILE YOUTH have announced they are to release new track ‘Above’ through their own label on April 21st. The track, taken from their latest record Rivers That Run For A Sea That Is Gone, is the second single to be taken from the album and just another reminder of why the band are so crucial and relevant in today’s musical landscape.
‘Above’ is a track about optimism and believing in yourself and everything around you; lead singerMads Damsgaard Kristiansen believes he is "An optimistic person by heart. And I believe in the world. This song Above is a reminder to myself of that. I belong up here. Where everything is open." Abovepersonifies this and packages it up exactly in a way you’d expect from a track that’s come from an optimistic and hopeful place. A subtle piano, driving bassline and staccato synth are the constants throughout with massive reverbed guitars pouring themselves over the track adding layer after layer.
