Snow Patrol Is Back. And They’ve Gone Wild.
If you lie there.
If you just lie there.
You’ll miss out.
Who the hell doesn’t remember that song?
Wanna live repeat?
Tell you what.
If you scream loudly enough they might just be unable to forget the world, and delve back into that three-line stanza arrangement that surely, by now, burns like habanero chilli bile in their throats.
But, look. The focus of this tour is their new album, ‘Wildness’.
According to Lightbody (lead singer and songwriter), “There are many types of wildness, but I think it can be distilled into two: the wildness of the modern age, all its confusion, illogic and alienation and a more ancient wildness…something primal, alive and beautiful that speaks to our true connectivity, our passion, our love, our communion with nature and each other. This is the kind of wildness the album is centred around. The loss of it. Trying to reconnect with it. To remember it.”
Then again…that’s sort of what they said about Paleo.
And we haven’t taken a dump in weeks.
