Get Inuit – Barbiturates

Hailing from Kent, alt-rock four-piece Get Inuit have dropped today their new intoxicating single Barbiturates, in advance of the upcoming show at the Lexington in London on January 25th. Listening to this track offers a similar experience to a roller coaster ride: hectic, with plenty of up-and-downs and cause of frequent adrenaline rushes.

Talking about Barbiturates, lead singer Jamie Glass said he “wanted to write a song that could contain a theatrical contrast of ferocious guitars and silence. Skin-crawling screams and pitiful whispers. Manic episodes and tranquility. I used the subject matter of drug reliance as a metaphor for the inner battle people have when trying to suppress rage, whether it be from a chemical addiction or just stress. I felt that the majority of songs I was listening to focused on one emotion and stretched out that feeling over the course of a song. It felt much more human to show inner conflict and mood changes rather than just pretend I’m only ever content, or in love, or depressed. I can be all of those things within the space of a minute.”
