Ahead of their upcoming album release, Barcelona-based MOURN are sharing new single ‘Irrational Friend’, which is taken from their record ‘Ha, Ha, He’, due June 3rd via Captured Tracks.
Laden with the band’s intricate take on post-punk, ‘Irrational Friend’ is inspired by William Blake’s “The Laughing Song” and much like the poem itself, the track is sort of a last gasp of screaming laughter on an album that’s marked in real time.
MOURN’s Jazz Rodríguez Bueno explains the band’s previous single ‘Second Sage’ saying, “This song is about last August. I was feeling alone, I had nothing to do so I spent the most of the time playing the Legend of Zelda, Ocarina of Time. That was the only thing that made me feel good at that time, and it made me feel kind of useful somehow. One day after playing, I picked my guitar and started talking about it. It’s basically about me waiting for someone to talk to me while I am in the Fire Temple.”
