The Scourge of the Sea: “Water Wings”

Sometimes I might feel like I’m somewhat “in the loop” when it comes to new music. Thank goodness for days like yesterday to deflate whatever ego I might have. Local Lexington heros, The Scourge of the Sea just signed to Alias Records, and will be the label’s first release in almost a decade.

MP3: The Scourge of the Sea – Water Wings
Love is frustrating and beautiful, but rarely so at the same time. With “Water Wings,” Scourge tells the tale of jumping headfirst into an uncertain kind of love, the kind where there isn’t always a winner. Trusting someone enough to let them care for you is a risky thing; lead singer Andrew English reveals as much during the song: “I only trust people after they’ve died.” It’s touching and beautiful, recalling The Softies at their best.
