Communicating Vessels and multi-city outfit Rose of the West are pleased to present “Feast or Famine,” the second song lifted from the Friday, September 8 release of No Things Permanent, an album whose blend of haunting dream-pop, goth rock, shoegaze, trip-hop, and progressive pop is informed by singer/frontwoman, lyricist, and guitarist Gina Marie Barrington‘s musical upbringing.
Following the album’s sultry lead single, “Come and Find Me,” “Feast or Famine” is a statement years in the making. Part hymnal, part lament, and part willing surrender, the song is a labor of love for Barrington that underwent a transformation with the addition of a bridge – a kind of meta commentary on breaking up the cyclical nature of a doomed dynamic. Watch the music video for “Feast or Famine” on YouTube HERE.
A patient and meticulous lyrical landscaper, Barrington is one who knows the fullest, brightest blooms can carry a burden as heavy as any sorrow. An album that features the creative dynamics of the group alongside the sonic contributions of co-producer Brad Timko, GRAMMY Award-winning mixer Darrell Thorp (Radiohead, Beck, Foo Fighters), and mastering engineer Heba Kadry (Bjork, Beach House, Slowdive), No Things Permanent is a deceptively upbeat yet brooding exploration of the human condition.
