NastyNasty released "Loner" on soundcloud and bandcamp last Valentine's as a gift to his fans, celebrating 10 years of the project with the most nostalgia inducing song he's written in years. Intentionally left off of his most recent album because its hopeful tone starkly contrasted the misanthropy and frustration expressed with 'Hideous Mask'.
"...But I'd always known it to be a strong song through crowd reactions. Having little foresight I neglected to bother putting it on spotify and having intended to bring "starcrossing" into the fold as this years Valentine's offering, I found it the perfect opportunity to give "loner" a second wheel. The two songs balance each other nicely, loner brings overt emotional tones in the form of a sweeping chord structure giving way to a big sawtooth bassline, relenting only for vocals to peak out and disappear into the sea of delays. The b-side "starcrossing" begins in a much more emotionally cold tone, establishing its environment of filth before exclaiming "It's...over" through it's granulated vocal utterances. Fact magazine once described me as having "enviable control over his volatile concoction" and I think these songs show that not only have I kept that spark intact, I've also grown exponentially in the finesse department."
