NEW MUSIC: Interbellum – Ready To Dissolve

interbellum-cover-1519344005081

This is most likely the first music we’ve featured from Lebanon and it’s a wonderful slice of downbeat indie guitar pop courtesy of the group Interbellum. ‘Ready To Dissolve’ comes from the recently released album Dead Pets, Old Griefs and is primarily the work of songwriter Karl Mattar (aka Charlie Rayne) as well as multi-instrumentalist and producer Fadi Tabbal and other musicians from the Beirut music scene.

‘Ready To Dissolve’ bears some hallmarks of the NZ indie music scene in it’s relaxed feel, gentle jangle of guitars and understated vocals. It’s a familiar and comforting sound that wraps itself around with its pastoral shimmer of a sound.

sun goes black
the picture cracks
and folds with the falling ceiling
echoes crawl around what remains of the walls
and I can hardly describe the feeling

everything tastes like ashes
the very sky could crash
it’s strange to watch the day slip
we’re going where the wind blows
out of the hatchback window
cars in the tunnel look like spaceships

and we’re speeding away
I can’t hear a word that you say
catch anything your glances imply
the tail lights dance before my eyes

I watch the air glow and the particles decay
still and all I wish I’d stayed

kiss my eyes and sing me to sleep
we won’t be around within weeks
hold me through the fog and the fall
I’m almost ready to dissolve
we haven’t learned much of anything at all
