Nation of Language returned last month with “Across That Fine Line,” announcing their sophomore album, A Way Forward, for a November 5 release.
Today, the Brooklyn trio share the “Wounds of Love,” about feeling directionless after an emotional breakup. To celebrate they released details of their upcoming live performance at The Grand Social, 29th January 2022.
"'Wounds of Love' is a song about getting caught in a mental feedback loop when a relationship ends,” notes songwriter Ian Devaney. “It's an endless inner argument - wanting to move on defiantly, but feeling utterly lost about how to do it when the other person has informed so much about how you see yourself. For every bit of progress there's just as much retreating, and eventually it seems like this back-and-forth becomes the new root of your identity - still tied to the same person, just without them actually being there.
"'Across That Fine Line' brings a whole new level of confidence to their ‘80s-inspired sound.” - Consequence
"Nation of Language has a way of bringing ‘80s synth-pop into the present, embodying these retro sounds, rather than simply trying them on for size.” - Paste
“We celebrate summer and new love with ‘Across That Fine Line’”
- Today's Top Tune, KCRW
