COMMUNIONS Return With New Single ‘Splendour’
Setting the stage afire with a renewed energy and a refined sound, Splendour marks a new era for the Danish outfit.
Stripping down to a duo, founders and brothers Mads and Martin Rehof kick off a new chapter of Communions with the release of their brand new single Splendour. With a coherent indie rock/alternative vibe throughout, the new track offers a delectable blend of crisp instrumentation and commanding vocals, building into a punchy chorus. Viscerally poetic and sonically invigorating, Splendour is a truly refreshing cut filled with a great dose of symbolism and lyrical depth, as it finds the duo exploring the destructive side of love.
On the new single, Martin Rehof reflects:
‘Splendour’ is about a sickly, unattainable love. One which possesses a destructive power. I wouldn’t say that it’s necessarily about a specific person. Rather, in a less concrete sense, it’s about the oppressive power that certain things in life can have over you. For instance, making art is something I love, but not something I feel I can help, and often it can be quite painful and fruitless. It’s like this thing, whatever it is, has chosen you, and not the other way around. It might inflict you with pain, but you almost come to enjoy it; you sort of accept it, embrace it, and maybe even thrive on it. It’s the context of someone addicted to someone or something else — where the power dynamics are skewed.
