Angels & Airwaves Go Darkwave With New Song ‘Spellbound’
Angels & Airwaves continue to evolve, with the band's latest single "Spellbound" taking a decidedly more darkwave turn. It's the latest song to emerge from the band's upcoming LIFEFORMS album.
The band just dropped the video for the new song in which the group perform inside a darkened laser-filled room, occasionally lit with colorful lighting. The clip was directed by frontman Tom DeLonge and fits the mood of the song, which is more dark synth-heavy in tone. Get a closer look at the lyrics and video below.
Angels & Airwaves, "Spellbound" Lyrics
I’m so, lost in desire
Can’t dig myself out
— something’s out there pulling at me
—like a ghost most definitely, yeah
like having sex while on fire
There’s no putting you out
— always out there biting that leash
— but you do it so delicately, yeah
Hey now, I’ll never say I’m sorry
I was never that coy
— Pull the pin, your cracking my head
— either way, I’m better off dead, yeah
Your rope is gripping me much tighter
I will figure you out
— waiting for these cuts to sting
— knowing how my heart will bleed, yeah
Some day I think I might scare you
I’ll be sneaking around
— I’m a thief who would think it was fun
— when u sleep, your alarm’s undone, yeah
One day, you’ll know that I’m prowling
Am I creeping you out
— an enemy having bad intentions
— like Halloween as an intervention
That girl will be your end
And she’ll bury you underground
She’ll kill you now and then
Cause your heart has been spellbound
And if you try to run
If it goes it comes around
It’s not hard to die from love
When your heart has been spellbound
