Arab Strap

Here Comes Comus! (Rock Action)

By • Feb 19th, 2021 • Category: Single review

Out in world now, the third track to come from the eagerly-anticipated new Strap LP takes us down dark alleyways and into nights of hedonism and risky behaviour, but surely not Arab Strap…!

‘Comus’ appears to be a devilish doppelganger which leads men who should know better astray…

“Powders in his pocket” indeed, and you “follow like the hound you are”… classy as always…

To a muscular riff from Malcolm Middleton, Aidan Moffat narrates this tale of extreme excess with relish and perhaps a glance askance to those good/bad old days, who knows?

It’s a peach of a track, with regrets in the morning, and the production as with all these new tracks is straight up to the mark.

After this and the previous two album trailers ‘The Turning of Our Bones’ and ‘Compersion Pt.1’ it is not an exaggeration to say that the new Strap album ‘As Days Get Dark’ could be the most anticipated release of 2021, and then some!
