Isle of Wight based psych-pop quartet As We Leave have just released their second single, a nostalgia-tinged track ‘Stories We Tell‘. It’s a track that’s full of dreamy melodies and drenched in a relaxing, summery warmth. ‘Stories We Tell’ has a psychedelic edge to it and the track becomes quite hypnotic towards the end.
Speaking of the track, frontman Caine Entwistle has said: “It’s the sound of nostalgia, those little indulgent moments when you reminisce. Fond memories lost in time that you long to recreate but know, deep down, they are gone… But no amount of idealism or cynicism should impinge on trying to articulate those feelings.”
“The wonderment of discovering “that record” that changed your life, the carefree, naive attitude of youth, the jarring possibility that the best things have passed… It’s As We Leave dancing with the bittersweet nature of personal nostalgia, or in a less pretentious fashion, having a few beers and remembering the good old days.”
