Hey loyal followers of my Sonic Hope you’re having a lovely Monday afternoon and to kickstart your week I have some great new music coming your way.
Manchester based alt pop outfit Egotist exhibit raw emotion through heart wrenching narratives and powerful melodies. Expect soaring choruses and stark piano ballads with confessional lyrics that dance between physical longing and emotional disintegration set to the devil’s heartbeat.
The first taste of which comes in the form of ‘GOD’. Three minutes of haunting piano, understated guitar and impactful percussion, there are echoes of Nick Cave and Leonard Cohen found within the track’s hauntingly stark delivery.
“GOD drudges through the early hours of a sleepless Tuesday morning stumbling around in the dark” explains frontman Joe Prior “It exposes the constant battle between my internal voices. Those of grandiosity, and self doubt.”
Darkly beguiling and staggeringly beautiful, you can expect to hear more from Egotist as the year progresses, with live show announcements expected on the band’s social media soon.
