About Another Sky

At this moment in time for Another Sky, there are maybe three certainties in this life: death, taxes, and rage. White-hot rage that takes you inwards, deeper into yourself, your fears, all the hidden truths you desperately tried to keep quiet while finding yourself. But with the band’s sophomore album Beach Day, that feeling opens a doorway to the most confident, fully-formed and forthright version of Another Sky so far.

Front-woman Catrin Vincent points out the relationship between anger and freedom on this record: where that feeling exists as an active, evolving situation to be understood, accepted, and fundamentally moved past. “If you don’t move through anger, it’ll calcify into bitterness, and it’s not worth it,” she says, “but it’s about having the freedom to find and feel that anger. How can you move through something you don’t even know is there?”. Much of the fury, righteous and exhilarating, is let out as a means to provide release for both the band and their fans, a moment of catharsis to be cherished. Vincent has already noticed this phenomenon at Another Sky shows: “instead of it being a place to party, it’s a place for people to just process their emotions. The audience are closing their eyes, sometimes they’re crying. I feel like we’re just a mirror—take what you need from this music.”

The album gave Vincent the opportunity to go more personal than ever – Another Sky has always supported and valued their front-woman’s vulnerability, but here it’s at its rawest. “Wait, why did I do this? Wait, why did I do this in the first place?” Vincent sings in the propulsive, almost euphoric climax of ‘Death of the Author’, one of many tracks on the album wrestling with a lack of control and surrender to the circumstances that great wreckage leave you with, whether you like it or not. The least you can do is make something of the rubble.
