SHAME – ” Baldur’s Gate “

Posted: December 9, 2021 in MUSIC

Shame have shared a new single, “Baldur’s Gate.” Despite the Dungeons & Dragons-y title, it’s a holiday song of sorts, but apart from a hint of sleigh bells in the opening moments and a mention of Christmas, you wouldn’t really know it. “Baldur’s Gate” is definitely a Shame song, though, with sinewy guitars and a dark romantic vibe: “If I could rip off all my skin,” Charlie Steen sings in the opening lines, “And parcel it inside a tin, I’d write your name in biro, on the ribbons, like decorations.”

“It’s about a period of time in which I’d regularly be trekking up to the streets of Edinburgh to see an ex-partner,” says Steen. “These are some of the thoughts I’d have when I’d be leaving Waverley station, en route back to London in the winter nights.
