Envy of None's Grooving "Look Inside" Was Inspired by Grapes

Ahead of delivering their self-titled debut album next month, Envy of None — the group featuring Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson, Coney Hatch vocalist/bassist Andy Curran, Alfio Annibalini and Maiah Wynne — have shared another new single.

"Look Inside" arrives today alongside a video directed by Jaden D., and follows the previously shared "Liar." As you'll hear below, the glacial groove of the group's latest certainly brings to the mind the Massive Attack- and Nine Inch Nails-leaning trip-hop influence Curran had alluded to upon the band's formation.

Curran also reveals that while his bandmate Lifeson can sometimes find inspiration in weed, he found it in wine when it came to "Look Inside." 

"I was in my studio late one night, headphones on … a few glasses of red wine deep and thought, wouldn't it be fun to pull out my bass, blow up the tone, double it and play to a really messed up super slow drum groove," he recalled in a statement. "It's got a real stoner vibe to it. That's what happens when you mix wine and bass … Mission accomplished!"

In a respective statement, vocalist Wynne shared of the music and her songwriting, "Sometimes you have to shine a light on all the ugliest pieces of yourself in order to truly change, and you have to keep slaying that dragon over and over again. It is a continuous, slow and painful process. The guitars and bass really drive the grittiness and heaviness I felt when I wrote those lyrics. It feels like an all-encompassing sludge, and that is what I absolutely love about this song."

As previously reported, Envy of None will deliver their self-titled 11-song debut on April 8 via Kscope.
