After 10 years of being in a band which has felt more like a family, these are the final two statements from Trembling Bells. I Am The King is inspired by various Greek myths. It’s about self destruction- feeling so jaded by the fruit machine of life that you start taking yourself apart as the final act of entertainment. Medusas sounds like it’s a Greek myth but is actually about jellyfish.

The Alex Rex songs are both covers. In April 2018 his younger brother, Alastair, passed away in his sleep. “I dream about him regularly” says Alex, “In one of my dreams we sang the Night Visiting Song together as a way of saying goodbye and to induce his passage into the world beyond.” You Know More Than I Know is a John Cale song that thrills Rex’ mum- every attempt at art is basically the artist saying “Mummy, look at me”.
