TUNE The Dirty Nil - Bathed in Light
It's inspired by a death dream that guitarist-vocalist Luke Bentham had. "On tour in England, I kept napping in the back seat of the sprinter,” he recounts to Billboard. “One dream, involving a fiery roundabout death, shocked me to consciousness and put me in jittery mood. I wrote down some nonsense on the back of a guitar string package and put a stomper of a riff to it at soundcheck.”
Guitars revving for the open road, Bentham howls his own epitaph in the chorus -- “I bathed in light, went out with a smile” -- before saying hello to Elvis and Jesus. This one’s for the fans who are eager for new records from modern day jean jacket rockers like Pup and White Reaper.
