CLWB FUZZ: Sertraline

Cardiff five-piece, Clwb Fuzz, have released their dark new single, Sertraline, a dark and unnerving piece with a nocturnal character and properties from indie shoegaze and psychedelia. The song comes with a surreal accompanying video.

Clwb Fuzz deliver a a pretty fascinating sound that nods to nineties alternative, and often carries a heavier tone and additional fuzz.

Vocalist Emily Kocan's lyrics speak of her overly realistic dreams which came as a side effect of taking antidepressants. She explains: "The song is mostly self explanatory. I wrote the lyrics when I was 18 or 19 and trying out different SSRIs [selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors]. All but one gave me adverse reactions, numbed me out or gave me extremely vivid and often disturbing dreams.

"Sometimes upon waking up in a dream state I wouldn’t know if what I dreamt was real or not. I think a lot of people experience this, and hearing similar stories from my friends who were also on SSRIs inspired me to write about it."
