The new, one-off double A-side single, recorded during the ' New Long Leg ' sessions, was previously available exclusively via the album's expanded Japanese edition.
New Long Legsessions at Rockfield Studios in July and August 2020, and previously available exclusively via the album’s expanded Japanese edition—titled “Bug Eggs” b/w “Tony Speaks!”“Bug Eggs” is slow and steady, with Tom Dowse’s warped guitars swaying above Nick Buxton and Lewis Maynard’s deceptively lively low end, and synths making a rare appearance between verses. What stands out the most are vocalist Florence Shaw’s uncharacteristically straightforward lyrics: She considers how she’s grown into herself with mild-mannered candor, sing-speaking, “I am not as fresh faced as I used to be / But what I’ve lost in that area? / I’ve gained in confidence / And dress sense / And other things.”
“Tony Speaks!,” meanwhile, is built around a dark Dowse riff and muted Buxton percussion, setting a spare and doomy tone to match Shaw’s visions of environmental destruction at the hands of humankind: “I’m just sad about the collapse of heavy industry / I’ll be alright in a bit,” she deadpans, describing being “buried under coal pieces” before later reflecting,” I always thought of nature as something dead and uninviting / Wet empty trees? / But there used to be a lot more of it.”
“’Bug Eggs’ is about the confidence that comes with age, fragility and sexual desire,” says Shaw of the new tunes in a statement. “The lyrics to ‘Tony Speaks!’ were written days after the Conservative party won the December 2019 UK election. I was thinking about climate change, environmental catastrophes and political campaigning.” headtopics.comRead more: Paste Magazine »
