A track about feeling out of place in social situations that came from a contemplative moment during a night out with friends, Ventry’s introspective lyrics perfectly encapsulate that inescapable feeling of dissonance that washes over you when you’d rather be anywhere else:

I just want to shoot the lights out  / (I don’t know why I came here) / But my words have cut their tongue out / (you’re human after all)

From the low-fi vibes of Beneath a Different Sun to the raw vocalisations and synths on Iris to the fuzzy, distorted guitar on The Numbers, Ventry’s fourth single expands on his distinctive production style for an excellent single. With his lyrics containing all the introspection of conversations had with others, Ventry makes music that speaks directly to those who haven’t quite found themselves yet.

Stop #08 is out across Spotify, Apple Music and Deezer. Check it out by heading here
