Covenant announce new single with lyrics based on recent events

05th of July 2016, 13:05

On August 26, Sound Mirrors, the first single from COVENANTs new album “The Blinding Dark”, will see the light of night. And for the first time ever, Covenant decides to give one of their songs a message based on recent events. Here is Covenant spokesman Joakim Montelius with his thoughts about the song:

“I was reading an article about this British pre-WWII project for early warning from attacks across the Channel, called Sound Mirrors. They were designed to amplify incoming sound from enemy aircraft enough to allow the defense to take them out before they could pose a serious threat.

My reading coincided with the refugee situation in Europe. That ability to anticipate possible scenarios is key to our survival from an evolutionary point of view. But we also have an equally amazing ability to ignore facts that make us feel uncomfortable or frightened. We can watch terrible things unfold right in front of us and still act as if nothing is going on. We buy ourselves a better conscience by sending some used clothes or money, we sign some petitions online, perhaps we write something heartfelt and compassionate on Facebook and then we go on with our comfortable lives.

But when the people suffering over there come knocking on our door, asking for a bit of the safety and prosperity we enjoy, that thin veneer of compassion and generosity cracks and our selfishness, our fear, our prejudice is suddenly all too apparent. And to my mind that’s because we ignore what we actually know:

There is no we versus them. There is only us. And there is only one world.

And when we see the truth of that simple fact and really absorb it so we can start acting on it, then there will be hope for us. Then we won’t need early warning. But I’m not sure we are capable to take that step at all. And that makes me terribly sad.”

Sonically, "Sound Mirrors" is a Covenant track in the vein of notorious club hits like “Ritual Noise” or “Last Dance” with a few additional unusual colours here and there. It is available for preorder here as CD and limited edition 4 track vinyl.
