South London’s Wallflower have just shared a video to accompany ‘Passer-by’, the third single taken from the band’s upcoming debut album, ‘Teach Yourself How To Swim’.
This is what guitarist/vocalist Vini Moreira-Yeoell had to say of the song.
“‘Passer-by’ started life as something very different and slowly morphed into whatever the hell it is now. It was actually one of the first songs we wrote when we decided that we were writing an album so there was a whole list of things we wanted to achieve and write at this point. One of our goals was to write something more electronic, industrial & experimental. There’s a Rhodes piano on there, 808s, a Bass VI having replaced one of the guitars and some spoken word parts incorporated for good measure. With all the strangeness going on in the music, we felt the lyrics had to match so it’s a little bit surreal at times. The song is all about being left behind and looking back at a period of your life realising how little impact you really had on somebody’s life, and vice versa.”

The band’s debut album, ‘Teach Yourself To Swim’, will be self-released on June 5th 2020.
