‘Thirst’ is the third single from Edinburgh-based Mt. Doubt’s second album, In Awe of Nothing, and its mellow-yet-captivating sound makes it an addictive listen.
It’s atmospheric and full of excellent lyrics, two things we’ve come to expect from Mt. Doubt which they always do so well.
There’s a slightly haunting feel to the track, especially in the beginning as Leo Bargery’s vocals slowly ease into the song with little urgency, but there’s a definite upbeat aspect to it too, heightened by the “oh woo”s swirling throughout the whole track and adding a dreamy quality.
‘Thirst”’ sounds quite summery so it brings some warmth to these cold days and conjures up memories of sweet summer evenings.
The last 30-seconds feature a beautiful, wistful guitar that could be listened to over and over, making you feel very nostalgic for something you can’t quite put your finger on.
Mt. Doubt are playing plenty of shows before the end of the year and their Scottish headline tour kicks off on November 18, so there’s no excuse to miss out on seeing them live.
