The indie group from Dublin have released their new track 'Bones to Mind', a creepy exploration of self-decay and captivity.
The band lay down their signature stamp by fusing ambient instrumentation with sordid lyrics.
The use of guitars is hallucinating, bringing the listener into a false state of serenity before being punctured by the darkness of the track.
Pulling together elements of Florence and the Machine with Pixie Geldoff, the track cleverly uses mysticism to tell a story of an evil form of love.
With lyrics that could easily be mistaken for a Sylvia Plath poem, 'Bones to Mind' tells the tale of a girl's body slowly being taken over by shadows. Throughout the song the body becomes consumed by the feeling, even leaving her struggling to breathe.
The song is an anti-romance song, rejecting any form of beauty that is typically used in a love song - in this world, love is nothing but a curse.
The track was the very first song Avelina had written and one can see that right from the start, the group employed a unique blend of atmospheric music with darkly poetic lyrics.
