Upcoming UK emo pop outfit Hot Milk are back with the feelgood jams, and this time they’ve bared their innermost souls. ‘Glass Spiders’ feels like the band’s most pressing single to date, exploring themes of substance abuse, self-sabotage and burnout, which I’m sure we can all relate to these issues at some point in our lives.
Driven by an electronic drum beat, the track revolves around the lyrics: “If I gave all my heart, til it tore me apart, would you feel better? / Destroy me completely and bury it deeply, would you feel better?” ‘Glass Spiders’ is a reminder for everyone to look after themselves first and foremost. Nothing is more important than your own health and mind.
This new release follows Hot Milk’s dark, edgy turn we saw earlier this year with ‘California’s Burning’. Fronted by Han Mee and Jim Shaw, these guys aren’t the ones to shy away from giving us the real pressing issues about the world today, and we absolutely love that the most about them.
