Unravelling 08:18


Soon after the release of Murderbait’s self-titled album, the addition of a second guitar player opened up new possibilities as to what could be achieved in live performances. Diving headlong into this notion, Murderbait wrote and immediately recorded this 2 song single to represent this evolving sound and to usher in a new era for the band.

Lyrically, the album resonates with similar themes as past albums with less reluctance to dance around the point. "When the Sun Goes Down…" is perhaps the most poignant song to date regarding the singer’s lifelong battle with depression. Given the song’s title, it’s no surprise that the song contains some bleak moments, but the song also points towards the beautiful absurdity of existence as though viewed longingly from a distance.

"Unraveling" touches on the residual effects of religion that affect us all, whether through societal norms or directly on the individual. The song is a journey back to acceptance of our true humanity, and stripping off the detrimental dogma placed on us throughout the years.
