Following the release of excellent recent single “Moral Fibre”, Hull based outfit LIFE have now announced details of their much anticipated second album “A Picture Of Good Health”. Alongside this announcement the band have also shared a new single taken from the record called Hollow Thing.

Whereas the band’s excellent debut album Popular Music was broadly political, the new album takes a more personal approach with some beguilingly honest and brave lyrics that are bold in both sound and feeling, whilst also retaining the core DNA of their previous material. Hollow Thing has the band homing in on a bigger and more focused sound whilst also channelling the lyrical content inwards.

Hollow Thing is about tackling isolation and fixing yourself. It’s about letting go of something in your life, something that’s passed.

‘’Wait for the past to fade, wait for that hollow thing…’’ Hollow Thing is about moving on and overcoming hurt, taking the hits but getting through it.

‘’Wade through a sea of beige, choke on great clods of dirt…’Hollow Thing is embracing your worth.

‘’I look much better than you, I love much deeper too.’’Hollow Thing is littered with lyrics that reference something ending and then something beginning again. It’s a twisted pick me up!

‘Hollow Thing’ is the second single to be taken from LIFE’s new album. Produced by Luke Smith (Foals) and mixed by Claudius Mittendorfer (Parquet Courts), the band home in on a bigger and more focused sound .

Going on to speak about the album Mez says “A Picture of Good Health is not a collage of work but rather a snapshot of time; our time and the time of those around us. It’s political, but in a personal way. It’s a body of work that explores and examines the band’s inner-selves through a precise period; a period that has brought pain, loneliness, blood, guts, single parenthood, depression and the need for survival and love. It is the sense and need for belonging that is the resounding end note!”
