Some vague reference to the all-dominating Oscar Pistorius trial, maybe? If so, I assure you that it was only done subconsciously.
I think you’d be hard pressed to deny that there are Depeche Modey elements in there. Like the baritone Greg Carlin as Dave Gahan in those opening bars- yes? And there’s no disrespect there, because there are very few bands that can reasonably be compared to those sort of heights.
Great stuff from a band that I was worried had lost their way a bit.
