RICH LIST Debut album 'Hold Your Forked Tongue'
Rich List release their debut album 'Hold Your Forked Tongue' on August 25.
The debut album from the Leicester quartet has been a long time coming. It’s appropriate therefore that its overarching theme is the unstoppable march of time. Whether that’s the slow decay of relationships, the accumulation of regrets, the loss of youth, life’s many disappointments or the simple acknowledgement that time is the fire in which we all burn.
The album is a bleak affair, proudly wallowing in gloriously uplifting misery. Musically it soars while lyrically it puts fires out with gasoline.
The title alludes to circumstances where trivial personal matters build to a dark, suffocating mass. in fact, just talking about it would smack of bitterness, self-pity and excuses. Which it is! But there we go!
Perhaps debut single ‘Esha Ness’ sums it up best. “You’re never really winning, but you’ve got to keep running.”
