New Music: Le Days – We Are Slaves

Le Days are a Swedish experimental folk group who first caught my attention at the beginning of the year through their vulnerable and cerebral track Red Little Hands. Now they’re back with new music that continues to push boundaries. It’s called We Are Slaves.

By Graeme Smith

We Are Slaves is slow and brooding. Acoustic instrumentals merge with electronic undertones and unsettling vocals, combining to create something which, while not an easy listen, is nonetheless stimulating. The piece builds to a big, cathartic climax that reminded me a little of A Saucerful of Secrets-era Pink Floyd.

This is an alternate recording of We Are Slaves and will feature on alongside other alternate recordings of previous tracks on Le Day’s fourth album, due out in a few weeks. While we wait for the album, you can hear the single below.
