Bristol-based experimental three-piece My Octopus Mind will soon be back with their second studio album ‘Faulty At Source’. The latter is set to be released on November 20th!
Alongside the album, My Octopus Mind have released a music video for ‘The Greatest Escape’, the album’s second single. Commenting on the track, lyricist Liam O’Connell states. “We found ourselves playing with minimalist textures in what feels like a new musical direction for us.
Lyricly it takes a look at the patriarchy, where “strong men don’t cry”, instead we suppress emotions and vulnerability. I find myself yearning to step out of this paradigm, to become free to express the softness and vulnerabilities, that could be “the greatest escape on Earth”.
