Twin Jackal have dropped their new single, ‘Cruel’

South Londoners Twin Jackal have debuted their acerbic new single, ‘Cruel’. Produced by Chris Coulter (Arcane Roots, Jamie Lenman), it’s their second single following on from ‘Humility’.

“To us, ‘Cruel’ has two interpretations,” the band explain. “The first is a one-sided conversation with another person expressing frustration, pain and acceptance. It’s not their fault the ruts they find themselves in feel insurmountable.

“The second is an introspective look at the challenges we face alone; the bad habits developed by our own mind becoming self-fulfilling prophecies in the way we treat ourselves.

“We are so excited about this track because the audio and video versions explore each meaning independently, resulting in a different experience depending on how you experience the song.”

Both ‘Cruel’ and ‘Humility’ are taken from upcoming EP ‘Optimo Animo’, with a handful of London shows and a music video ‘on the way’, too.
