London band Sunken have a debut EP on the horizon, and today have given us another glimpse of the magic it’s set to behold with new song and video “Sorry For Everything”. It’s a break up song, but a tender one, as the band explain:
‘Sorry For Everything’ focuses on a feeling of frustration and discomfort experienced through the process of disconnecting from someone romantically. There is a constant emphasis throughout the song which alludes to a fear of the sentence ‘sorry for everything’: almost as an easy cop out/quick escape rather than a sincere and genuine apology. The song is ethereal and delicate to symbolise the vulnerability of letting go as well as the anguish this can cause one’s perspective towards themselves and the other person. Equally it is a collection of words for empowerment, and acceptance for something which is inevitably out of one’s own control.”
Sunken have created a dreamy indie atmosphere with splashes of jazz and the mood of trip-hop on “Sorry For Everything”. This combination drifts gorgeously, and with Poppy Billingham’s graceful vocals floating atop they take us into the slow and aching disconnection between two former lovers. Sunken’s sound evokes the invisible tendrils of emotion that cling to that former flame, even when you know the light has gone out, and it’s time to pull away; all you can say to them, and to yourself, is “Sorry For Everything”.
