SPB premiere: "Plastic Bags and Seagulls" by Duvel

SPB premiere: "Plastic Bags and Seagulls" by Duvel

Scene Point Blank is excited to premiere a new song off the upcoming debut from Oslo, Norway’s Duvel, titled Attempts At Speech. Today we’re sharing the song “Plastic Bags and Seagulls.”

Guitarist/vocalist Jack Holldorff explains the song like this:

In short, our new single is about an old Russian lady walking about in the royal park, picking up everyone’s empty bottles. The reason that we “know” her, is that we spend most of our free time in this very park. Why? It’s the best park in Oslo. There is more than enough space for everyone to do whatever they want, without bothering anyone. And the police can’t tell you to pour you beer out because it is technically a military area. But anyway, the song is about this old lady and us, and how it feels to have her picking up our garbage.

Listen here: 

Fysisk Format will release Attempts At Speech on May 25. Pre-orders are available now.
