Trails and Ways have announced a new track from their forthcoming album Pathology. Say You Will was written by bass player Emma Oppen; the original inspiration for the song came from falling in love with someone almost instantly, to the point of issuing a bold ultimatum: say you will, or don’t say anything at all.
From there it’s progressed into a slinky pop groove, all bass buzzes and shimmering, swaying new wave guitar strums and a sweet vocal style masking the lyric’s bold insistence.
Pathology is out on June 2nd, via Barsuk records.
Catch Trails and Ways on tour this summer, with support from Waterstrider.
