St. Paul & The Broken Bones shared another preview of their upcoming album, “The Alien Coast”, on Tuesday with the single “Minotaur”. “The Alien Coast” is out on January 28th via ATO Records.

The dreamy single finds its footing in a guitar loop that guitarist Browan Lollar dreamed up on a tour bus in Europe. Frontman and onetime aspiring preacher Paul Janeway delivers a falsetto sermon of lyrics inspired by Pablo Picasso‘s use of a minotaur as an alter ego in a series of paintings. The song’s poetic verses confront issues of identity and trauma, as Janeway belts, “Innocence is lost by violent decay/Stuck inside the maze all the mundane.”

“‘Minotaur’ is about fearing something within you, and the loneliness that comes from that,” Janeway said in a statement. “Especially if you grew up in an abusive situation, there can be this feeling of having something in you that you don’t want to encounter or even recognize.”

‘Alien Coast’ is the fourth LP by US band St. Paul & The Broken Bones. The eight-piece soul band have taken influences from dystopian sci-fi, art, Greek mythology and the books about their country’s colonial past. Includes the funky disco single ‘The Last Dance’ – a song about dancing whilst facing the apocalypse.

The new St. Paul & The Broken Bones single “Minotaur” is from St. Paul & The Broken Bones’ new album ‘The Alien Coast’ which will be released on January 28th, 2022.
