Bad News Club follows up their debut ‘The Painter’ with ‘Absent’, a cleverly layered song that packs a hefty emotional punch. Written after a trip away from home, it’s an ode to the items that had been left behind and combines tender vocals, mournful strings and the heartfelt sentiments of The Antlers or Elliott Smith. Bad News Club talks about a box of books that have never been read before finishing the song by repeating ‘I’m not coming back, I’m leaving’ amidst haunting harmonies.
