This is what it feels like waiting Will I ever run out of patience? Scarlet's violence is hard to take But it's all that we've known for so long we can't say Our lives ran in parallel lines Until that's all we've got inside It's who we are now And you can't go back home This is what it feels like waiting Trying not to run out of patience Violet's shy but I think that she's kind Emerald's getting jealous with her beautiful eyes Our lives ran in parallel lines Until that's all we've got inside It's who we are now And you can't go back home And you can't go back home And you can't go back home And you can't go back Our lives ran in parallel lines Until that's all we've got inside It's who we are now And you can't go back home And you can't go back home And you can't go back home

about

Fragile Creatures latest single, Parallel Lines, available digitally from May 29th 2020. The fourth teaser single from our upcoming second album, Punk Yacht.

Combining rock, grunge, pop and catchy melodies, Fragile Creatures evoke the spirit of great musical innovators of the past from Bowie to Blur and beyond. Resistant to the formulaic, going wherever their musical muse takes them. Hot on the heels of last spring's Heart Beat EP, the band are gearing up to release their second album Punk Yacht, with a series of DIY-recorded psych-pop singles. Parallel Lines is the latest of these singles, possibly the most mellow track on the album, with a lyric that considers the difficulty of remaining patient through troubling times it seems to resonate with current affairs – the lockdown conditions we all find ourselves in during the coronavirus crisis. Speaking about Parallel Lines songwriter Adam Kidd states;

"I wrote this one three years ago, whilst coming to terms with the end of a long-term relationship and struggling to open up to new possibilities. I originally thought I'd use it for a solo project, but the guys – particularly Tom Alty (lead-guitarist) – really liked it, so we adapted it for Fragile Creatures. The refrain, "you can't go back home," is intended as analogous to Greek philosopher Heraclitus' observation that, “No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it's not the same river and he's not the same man.” Time and events in our lives changes us, for better or for worse we become new people, which is something we all must accept if we are to move forwards in our lives."

Here on Bandcamp fans can download not just the Parallel Lines single, but also the original bedroom demo of the song, when Adam was considering it as a solo effort and a special lockdown version the band recorded for their #TuesdayTunes video series available on IGTV, Facebook, and YouTube.
