The first offering off the band’s forthcoming followup to Bitte Orca.
As layered and jittery the instrumentation of their popular ‘Stillness Is the Move’ was, that of ‘Gun Has No Trigger’ is just as low-key and loose. The rhythm section shuffle along all by themselves, with all focus directed to Dave Longstreth’s shaky voice cutting through the female band members’ spooky harmonies. It’s a dramatic performance for sure, and suits the lyrics about power and helplessness, while the background vocals sound more and more like walls closing in on Longstreth.
