A. Savage debuts new single "Black Holes The Stars And You"

“Black Holes, the Stars and You,” was recorded in the same sessions as his solo LP Several Songs About Fire. The track has been a long-time coming from visual artist and Parquet Courts member A. Savage, and includes production by John Parish (PJ Harvey), with Side B: containing a cover of  ‘Oyster and the Flying Fish” by Kevin Ayers.

A. Savage on “Black Holes, the Stars and You,”:

“I love the groove that John Parish and Dylan Hadley lay down here, using various Latin percussion instruments. It’s a song that I’d been working on for a few years, that had way too many parts and lyrics, which John really helped me sculpt down into what it is now, bless him. The song is about the different ways people see each other, and how the smaller we feel the bigger others seem. Sometimes you find yourself orbiting someone who has no idea of their own magnitude. Sometimes you feel like they are examining you in a Petri dish, their gaze a magnified eye in the sky.”

Several Songs About Fire was produced by John Parish in Bristol, the album includes support by Jack Cooper (Modern Nature, Ultimate Painting) and Cate Le Bon, as well as members of Kamikaze Palm Tree & caroline.
