Exclusive Premiere: The British IBM, ‘We Were the Stars’

Wall Of Sound PR

On Sept. 4, the British IBM will celebrate the release of their new record, Psychopaths Dream In Black and White — a disc frontman Adrian Killens describes as “an emotional album about unemotional people.” Today (July 16), Diffuser is thrilled to partner with the Cambridge-based trio for the premiere of the LP’s second single, “We Were the Stars” — check it out in the audio player below.

The new song is delicately down-tempo, with Killens and company creating an unforgettable listening experience centered around a folk-tinged indie rock sound.

“The track started out life as a simple acoustic song and grew into something slightly more orchestral after we began to layer string sections played by the awesome Anna Scott — who played on our first album,” the band tells us. “Then after talking to a church band that happened to be rehearsing in the studio one day, we got to asking about choirs and one thing led to another and a few choir members came in one Saturday morning.”

The band goes on, “Lyrically, it’s quite a dark track — although it may not sound like it — about the self-realization of a business man coming to terms with his complete lack of empathy and realizing that this quality will actually lead to a fairly stress-free life in which he can thrive.”

Psychopaths Dream In Black and White hits the streets on Sept. 4, followed by a handful of gigs in the U.K. in October. You can stay current with everything happening in the British IBM’s world at their official website.
