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

Sextile | Albeit Living album cover

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’.
