Ahead of White China’s forthcoming sophomore EP, “II”, the duo have shared a taste with Blackout.
Rather than the alcohol-induced form, Blackout details those days of great despair that are better spent alone and asleep. With a sombre melancholic fog, it covers the ugly halogens with a slow tide of skittering synths and hazy vocals. “This song is about that kind of depression where you don’t want to wake up so you sleep all day,” notes frontman Gianluca Buccellati. “You don’t want to eat, and you don’t want to talk to anyone about it. You’d rather avoid life altogether.” I feel you, homie.
