Sextile Meld Restless Synth Lines With Scrambled Memories on “Situations”


As Sextile get set to release Albeit Living—their second album on felte—this Friday, frontman Brady Keen has been kind enough to share a few words about the LA trio’s latest single. Here’s what he had to say about the synth-doused “Situations,” along with the LP’s last two official leaks and a stack of summer tour dates that include a gig with the Black Lips side project Crush:

This song came to me while I was on my way to steal groceries, a period of my life where I struggled financially and that I am not too fond of. And while on the way, I started thinking about all the other weird situations I had been in through course of my life. I started singing the melody, recorded to it my phone, and there it is, ‘Situations’.
