Today, Spanish Love Songs have released another new single, “Pendulum.” The song is their third released from their upcoming album, No Joy, which will be released on August 25th via Pure Noise Records. It is their follow up to 2020’s Brave Faces Everyone and can be pre-ordered here.

Expanding on the meaning behind the lyrics of the new track, vocalist/guitarist Dylan Slocum explains, “The song is a few different stories blended together that all dance around the fact that death is such a solitary act. The details of the stories are meant to feel vaguely familiar — someone on the verge of dying alone in a hospital; someone with dementia; countless friends who’ve decided to end it on their own terms. We’ve all lost someone.

Slocum continues “I think people generally don’t want to be left alone, or to die alone, yet that’s often all we’re left with. It’s all very terrifying, so a lot of the time I’m just trying to be present and enjoy what I’ve managed to scrape together. I wait for the pendulum of my worry to swing the other way, into some form of manic love.

Spanish Love Song have released the video for “Pendulum,” which can be found below. It was directed by Hannah Gray Hall, who was also behind the camera for the music video of No Joy‘s lead single “Haunted.”
