Sorry have dropped two new singles, ‘Cigarette Packet’ and ‘Separate’

Returning with two new tracks, Sorry have released their first new music since the release of our Album Of The Year runner up 925

North London’s Sorry have released two new tracks, ‘Cigarette Packet’ and ‘Separate’. Co-produced alongside James Dring, of Gorillaz and Nilüfer Yanya fame, the two tracks mark the first new music from the band in over a year.

Talking about the new tracks, lead singer Asha Lorenz said: “These songs came from ideas we worked on from home during last year. The sounds are quite metallic/silver/grey and the lyrical ideas are repetitive almost as if they are whispers/mantras/worries that you’d say to yourself and keep to yourself.”

The tracks are also accompanied by a pair of videos, created by Flasha Prod. (a collaboration between frontwoman Asha Lorenz and the band’s longtime friend Flo Webb). Speaking about the videos Lorenz also said: “We try and make the videos in a playful way whilst also expressing lots of mood and emotion; the use of black space and never showing full faces or using objects (like the toy cars) makes it feel like they’re flashes of thought or surreal memories. We loosely based ‘Separate’ on the J. G. Ballard novel Crash. It’s as if the water is his mind and he’s relaying or planning the series of crashes with the toy cars. Most of all, the videos are used for the colour splash or the movement to give the song almost another layer of rhythm that’s maybe audibly invisible but you visually can feel it within the song. With ‘Cigarette Packet,’ we wanted it to feel claustrophobic and for intensity to build where it felt right. The mouths all merge into one voice, by the end it’s hard to tell who’s saying what, as if all your friends or people you meet are just parts of you. It’s weird what your mind chooses to hear or remember.”
