To promote the release of their new album “Justify & Reason” being available in stores across the UK today (April 10th) through Plastic Head Distribution, they have just dropped an official lyric video for their third single taken from the album for “White Circles”.
Artwork for single, “White Circles”.
Vocalist, John Knight had this to say about the lyrical meaning behind the new song:
“Lyrically the song describes the story of one person’s dependency on medication, antipsychotic drugs, the decision whether to stop taking them and return to a natural state risking confusion and illness or to continue on, the side effects, the withdrawals, the risks. All overseen by the ‘god like’ Psychiatrist. Singer John Knight worked for many years within the Mental Health system at management level and witnessed how the clients saw and described their experiences, “I spoke at length with a client about her feelings towards her medication and her Psychiatrist, she told me her Psychiatrist was ‘like a God’, someone who oversaw all the choices she made and controlled her life, it made an impression and I wrote this song that night, of course not every story is the same and medication plays a very important and useful part of people’s life, it’s not an anti-medication song at all, but about the conflict a person has, the internal battle……telling themselves ’I’m well now, I don’t need these tablets’ without realising they feel this way because the medication is working, the side effects both being on and withdrawing can be severe”.
‘White Circles’ is a song with great progressive dynamics, light and shade, building to a frantic & blistering metallic end.
