Aroused And Confused, is the first single from Suburban Savages’ upcoming album Demagogue Days, which will be released by Apollon Records Prog on LP/CD/digital on the 5th of March.
Despite being the album longest track, it still is a natural choice for the first single, showcasing how the band has grown and matured as both musicians and composers since the release of Kore Wa! in 2017.
On Demagogue Days the music has become more dynamic and nuanced, the arrangements sophisticated and ambitious. Vocals have taken a more prominent role than on earlier albums.
Aroused And Confused is an energetic track where complexity and playfulness naturally segue into more dreamy and melancholic passages. The lyrics are based on stream of consciousness and cut-up techniques, words and phrases chosen for both their sonorous qualities as well as their literal meaning.
The album was written by: Gjellum, Meidell, Krabberød and Lesteberg.
Trond Gjellum: vocals, drums, percussion, programming, synths, samples
Anders Kristian Krabberød: bass, e-bow guitar
Mari Lesteberg: backing vocals, synths
