‘The Roaches' is St. Ives’ latest offering and follows on from ‘Nowhere’, ‘As You Are’ and ‘Die For’. ‘The Roaches’ is an apocalyptic premonition, exploring the concept of what we would do when we know that tomorrow, the end will arrive. The lyrics set up the feeling of a type of reflective resignation to the approaching storm, to the imminent fire, anchoring its message on the line "When the end approaches, don’t hold on, we’ll leave it to the Roaches”. With both Blum and O’Neil having dealt with great loss and grief since the inception of the project, the song is their most personal and revealing to date.
Drawing on heavy influences from Portishead, Goldfrapp and Radiohead, St.Ives have the ability to frame their nostalgic sound in a context that feels right at home in 2018.
