In a couple of months, we’ll finally see the release of Vukovi‘s second full-length effort, ‘Fall Better’, and they’ve just shared another track from it called ‘Run/Hide’.
Speaking on the track, vocalist Janine Shilstone explains that it refers to her personal struggles with a form of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder called Thought Action Fusion – a disorder that can lead those who have it to believe that their actions are guided by an external presence.
“It’s about questioning whether I can actually get away from this thing that I think follows me. Can I learn to control it? [It] makes decisions for me, and decides whether something good or bad is going to happen to me on any given day.”
Guitarist Hamish Reilly also added the following.
“I wanted to create a song we didn’t quite have yet on the album, like a super mature, heavy, fucked up track. Eventually I fell into the riff and just began to build from there! I felt lucky to find that riff, I didn’t actually come up with that, but more someone must have planted it in my head!”
You can listen to ‘Run/Hide’ below.
The band’s sophomore studio album, ‘Fall Better’, is set to be released on January 24th 2020 via their own label, VKVI Records.
