Turin Brakes release the gorgeously upbeat track ‘Life Forms’ from their brand new album Invisible Storm – which was released last month. ‘Life Forms’ gambols along in a supremely pleasurable way with an addictive ear-worm guitar riff weaving through 3 minutes of pop perfection.
“We were all reeling from the shock of political and social earthquakes and the feeling that the worlds core was no longer stable”, says singer Olly Knights… “So, what better way to cheer ourselves up then than some nihilistic disco folk about our reality as life forms spinning on an organic space ship through eternal nothingness…” “ah that’s better”.
So there you go, that’s what ‘Life Forms’ is all about!
