Hamilton four-piece Pet Sun take on the sometimes shambolic nature of the human mind with their latest "Dark Planet." It's a shaggy, shadowy labyrinth of an outing, where the monster (what good is a maze without one?) lurks behind every turn.
"The song tells less of a story than it does paint a chaotic picture of our minds when we wrote it," singer/guitarist Stephane Senecal-Tremblay says. Nightmares and restlessness are themes throughout, he explains, the messy byproducts of inner conflict.
The tempo changes emphasize that chaos: listeners never get the chance to settle in, hurtled instead off into the next section, before the outro finally lets go of all control.
