Pupil Slicer Debut “Thermal Runaway” Music Video, The Armed’s Cara Drolshagen Guests


Pupil Slicer have released a music video for their new single, “Thermal Runaway“. That song finds The Armed vocalist Cara Drolshagen guesting on vocals and you can check it out below. The song also features the talents of Pupil Slicer‘s latest addition, guitarist Frank Muir.

A digital single for the track will be out this Thursday, February 03rd and will feature remixes of “Wounds Upon My Skin” done by Nadja and Marble Girl.

Vocalist/guitarist Katie Davies offered the following of this newly shared track:

“The idea behind the track was to capture the experience of being in a catastrophising cycle of anxiety and depression that keeps getting worse no matter what you do, through metaphors of thermal runaway that occurs in stars which leads to supernovas.”

Speaking of working with Cara, Davies added:

“We are huge fans of The Armed and really love Cara‘s vocal work with them. I wrote the track with Cara in mind and approached her with the title and some general themes already established. She took the ball from there and laid down her vocal parts which established the fantastic core lyrical drive on the chorus which I then expanded.”

Drolshagen offered:

“It’s pretty incredible what you can do creatively now even being miles apart. We had such a great time collaborating on this song. Pupil Slicer were amazing to work with and really gave me the chance to mould my style with theirs in a really unique way.”
