London up-and-coming trio Birthmarks have just shared their first single, ‘How Do You Rule Me’, which also acts as the lead single for their forthcoming debut LP, ‘…And Then The Rain Stopped’.
This is what frontman Daniel Cross had to say about the song.
“‘How Do You Rule Me’ is the result of a sobering realisation that I had an unhealthy obsession with someone that had completely taken over my life. It creates a very ugly version of yourself, completely contrived and pre-planned to the point that you lose yourself. I felt anchored in the middle of an emotional ocean by this person with no land in sight. The worst part of this kind of obsession is that you start to enjoy it, it becomes a part of you and part of your identity. They become the reason you do anything.”
You can stream and watch the video for ‘How Do You Rule Me’ (directed by Jamie Kendall) below.
The band’s debut studio album, ‘…And Then The Rain Stopped’, is out on September 20th 2019.
Pre-orders for the record are expected to be made available soon.
