Listen: Birthmarks – ‘Charcoal’

By July 25, 2019 Listen, News


Birthmarks are excited to share their beautifully unhinged new track “Charcoal”, taken from their debut album  “…And Then The Rain Stopped” set for release October 18th, 2019.

“Charcoal” showcases Birthmarks’ intelligent use of dissonance with carefully crafted dynamics, adorned with impassioned and forlorn vocal melodies that scream raw honesty; with each repeated listen of this bitter-sweet cocktail becoming more addictive than the last and revealing its many rewarding layers.”

“Charcoal is an introspective look on dealing with the act of separation. It’s the realization that some situations are beyond repair and the growth involved to move on is painful for both sides but necessary. It’s about how any action that you take at that time can feel like you’re hurting the other person and the guilt that follows given that they’ve been the centre of your world for such a long time. It’s about the facts you wish were fiction.
