The band has shared the video for “Worn Out Mannequin,” which features Kim Song Sternkopf of shoegaze superstars MØL.
The single blends seamless layers — there are melodic twists from both vocalists, along with the band’s signature riff style.
Vocalist Johan Pedersen says, “The song is about performing and putting yourself out there as a musician — dealing with praise and ridicule. It’s about the bullying culture among musicians and the cynicism and isolation it can lead to.”
About the music, the band shares, “We’re very happy to present this track as the focus track of The Hindsight Notes. This track encapsulates our approach to songwriting — let’s get weird and experimental but make it accessible and take people on a journey.
“There’s intensity, vulnerability, epic parts, and a big, heavy outro. The choir, piano and the brilliant feature from our mate Kim Sternkopf adds were all very satisfying additions to our palette and we feel that if this track appeals to you, you’ll find plenty to enjoy on the album.”
Kim Song Sternkopf says, “My longtime friends in Cold Night For Alligators have, with their latest album, focused on strong songwriting, emotional dynamics, and sensibility over technical showoff, which plagues a lot of their counterparts in the prog/tech/djent sub-genre.
“These moves combined with excellent mixing and mastering by Jacob Hansen — who nailed the vibrant stadium rock ambiance, distinguishes their sound even further — was what made me go, ‘F**k Yes!’ when [drummer] Nikolaj [Lauszus] asked me about the feature. I am convinced that we will find a band that after many years of pushing the technical envelope finally rests confidently in their mature expression found on their latest full-length The Hindsight Notes.“
Having toured with the likes of TesseracT and Whitechapel, and with festival appearances such as Euroblast and UK Techfest under their belts, Cold Night for Alligators have been building their name and are poised to take the next step.
