Conversations About Her

Secret Spade – Gallows | New Music

Sydney duo (Johann Willenberg and Marcus Ng), Secret Spade, offer “Gallows”, the first track off their upcoming self-titled EP, due for independent release in February. Apparently the song is about addiction, especially substance abuse. Perhaps the gallows is the self-imposed death of addiction? Clever title choice.

 

“Gallows” is very laidback and ethereal, the thump of bass drum like a heartbeat. There is an undercurrent of tragedy, though. Aspects, going from high to low, are maybe akin to a comedown or bad trip. The fadeout rings out. Is this the petering out of the addict, either walking dead or overdosed dead?

I've always wanted to be involved in the media since before I even left school; to write for a living.I feel most eloquent when mapping out my thoughts on paper or on a computer screen.I studied media at college for two years, and went straight into third year at university studying publishing with journalism.After a range of work experience, I did a magazine journalism course in Bournemouth, a long way away from my hometown of Aberdeen, achieving my NCTJ qualifications.Now I spend my time gladly writing about music.
