Singled Out: A Mouth Full Of Matches – White Flags

A Mouth Full Of Matches

We recently caught up with A Mouth Full Of Matches for the lowdown on their new single White Flags. Find out more below!

Can you describe the writing and recording process for White Flags?
We all came together to write a few new songs and this one just pounced out at us. We wrote it all together adding bits and bobs as we went a long, it was a really nice recording experience as it all just seemed to fall together.

What made you choose this song as a single?
It is very energetic and punchy with an anthemic twang on it. So we thought it was an obvious choice. We really enjoy playing it too, we really hope it’s a big song on tour!

What’s the story behind the track?
It’s about being involved with someone and following them down a path you don’t necessarily agree with but you go along with it anyway to see where the journey takes you.

Would you say it’s representative of your next release or is it more of a standalone piece?
It comes together in our new Demon Day EP which is released on October 12th! We cannot wait for people to get their hands on it. If you came on our tour you may already have it! Lucky people!

You’ve also recorded a video for White Flags – how did that go?
Really well thank you! We actually shot and edited it ourselves which was a first but we always love to be a part of the creative process. We felt a lot more involved on this one.

What can you tell us about it?
There were a lot of projections and the outside filming was bloody freezing! Especially wearing a vest! Really excited how it came out though. It took us about a day to film it all, all eagerly waiting for our turn against the camera.

Any interesting anecdotes from filming?
(Tom) I think my nipples could cut glass after it! I’m glad its silhouetted in the video, otherwise you’d see my teeth chattering and my goosebumps in HD!
