"Post Lew Sterrett Blues"

by Nonstarter

“The ‘Post Lew Sterrett Blues’ is the story of someone at their lowest point and how lonely and isolating it can feel. It’s about addiction and self-doubt. It reflects the reality that many feels when things are at their worst and how hard it can be to fight back to a new reality.”

bottomless

by big spin

After not playing together for 17 or 18 years, "Bottomless" was one of the first songs that the four of us wrote together as a group. It starts with a heavy bass riff, then enter the guitars, which, together with the drums, create a syncopated harmony with which we wanted to generate expectation.
