Manchester alt-indie stalwarts, Narwhals, tug at heartstrings with their latest single, ‘Unstitched,’ a poignant exploration of heartache and separation, offering a glimpse into the sonic evolution of the band as they prepare to drop their sophomore album later this year.

Clocking in at just under three minutes, ‘Unstitched’ is a testament to Narwhals’ musical maturity and their journey as a band. The track, following the success of 2023’s ‘Airport Runs,’ is a harbinger of the quartet’s exciting new direction in 2024. The emotional depth of the song is underscored by melodic guitars, consistent percussive beats, and a vocal performance reminiscent of Ian Curtis, weaving a tapestry of heartache and loss within the lyrics.

“Ever since I was five years old I’ve expressed myself by making up songs. Narwhals is a deeply personal journey, a diary of my adulthood, my way of making life make sense.”

As Narwhals unravel the emotional threads of separation in ‘Unstitched,’ listeners are invited to experience a cathartic journey. With the upcoming album, New Years Drunk In A Cocktail Bar, on the horizon, the Manchester quartet promises more sonic adventures in the months to come.
