In Y/OURS, the Saints have unleashed themselves in a no holds barred manner. Mattngwlia brings about a touch of lo-fi, there's an ambient interlude in Labyrinth, culminating in Enigma, a song that builds up progressively and concludes in a post-hardcore track fashion, with the band's vocalist Mateen screaming to bits.
The 9-track album spans three years of work and features previously released singles Bind, Wondering, Lover’s Dream, and Bitter Truths alongside the debut of new tracks Ikhlas, Mattngawlia, Labyrinth, Fealty, and Enigma.
Recorded at Snakeweed Studios, the band extended their gratitude to the founder Leonard Soosay and managing partner Josh Wei in an Instagram post: “Special thanks to Snakeweed studios, Leonard Soosay, Josh Wei for the hospitality and patience while we were making the album.”
The album art, designed by Israfil, was also given his flowers, the band crediting them for "always coming up with our crazy cover art. You’ll be a star.”
Saints Amongst Sinners will be performing Y/OURS in its entirety on the 13th of November at the Esplanade Concert Hall as part of The Esplanade's Mosaic Music Series.
