Leprous - Share New Song And Video

Leprous are excited today to release their brand new single, entitled "Castaway Angels", which is available to obtain here. The song was recently tracked at Ocean Sound Recordings in Norway and then mixed by Adam Noble (Placebo, Biffy Clyro, Nothing But Thieves). The video was directed by Tobias Hole Aasgaarden / South Coast Creative.

Singer Einar Solberg comments on Instagram:
"This year we've all had to readjust our lives, do new things. Missed out on things we were supposed to do, and find new things to do. One day in the beginning of the corona outbreak in Norway I came to TorO's house with a song we were supposed to work on together. The problem was that I was already finished with the sketch we were supposed to be working on (which was later on thrown away as it wasn't that good after all), so we just sat down to try to make something new. Him with the acoustic guitar, and me with my voice. During a quite short time, we came up with the main structure of what was later to become 'Castaway Angels'. Very basic, very pure and no technology to distract us. Just the melody and the guitar. So once we got in the amazing Ocean Sound Recording near Aalesund, Norway we continued that approach with the full band. We recorded the song together in the studio (when we were not busy sitting in the Jacuzzi being in awe by the view) in one take, after jamming together for one evening. It's so typical to get obsessed with details, perfectionism and layers. But here we just wanted to play together. Do something pure and simple. I'm very pleased with the result, and can't wait for everyone to hear how we've been spending time together when we were supposed to be on tour."

I'll take Leprous' departure from their roots over Steven Wilson's

I openly welcome the direction they've taken.
It might not be Metal, but it's quality like little other out there.

To me, Malina will always be their strongest album, next to The Congregation. But I like this a lot a swell. This band can't go wrong, in my opinion.

It's a really good song. I didn't like Pitfalls all that much but this sounds really nice and promising.

This song follows in the footsteps of "Alleviate" (which is one of the best songs they've written imo), "Below" and "Distant Bells" with the build up to the crescendo at the end. For me these three songs were the highlights on Pitfalls. I like the direction they've taken and they remind of Between the Buried and Me. Another band that that went softer and became way better. Leprous is like a fine wine, they only get better with time.
