This is the first single from Glasvegas' third album Later....When The TV Turns To Static
. The single release is accompanied by a cover of PJ Harvey's "The Words That Maketh Murder
" as well as two other Glasvegas originals - "Press" and "Finished Sympathy."
"A lot of thought went into this EP' said frontman James Allan, "from the decision about the cover track right down to the wee <> symbols in the 'Press' title, which I wanted to make look like a button on a VCR. I sometimes mess around with letters and symbols and stuff. The reason for choosing 'the Words That Maketh Murder,'" he continued, "was that some of the overs we have done in the past have been older songs, so we wanted to go for something newer. The PJ Harvey album Let England Shake
is a record we had been listening to and it seemed an obvious choice to pick a song from this record."
"'Press' is a new song," Allan continued, "and is me speaking in a hypothetical sense, a 'what if-scenario', and the demo of 'Finished Sympathy
,' well it's a bloody good song from the album that we are really proud."
