More information on Sirens below...
New single ‘Sirens’ is one of the more direct moments on I LIKE TRAINS’ second full length record ‘He Who Saw the Deep’. It takes the famous Greek myth of the Sirens calling sailors to shipwreck as a metaphor for how the human race is unable to resist the lure of progress despite our growing knowledge of the damage being done in its name. It doesn’t preach or judge, but simply accepts our fate and feelings of guilt as we appear powerless to affect change.
The video produced by Progress Films and shot on the beautiful North Yorkshire coast, takes a dark interpretation of the lyrics dealing with the demons of a fisherman tormented by his urges, his dark fantasies and his guilt.
