“Ruins,” the second release by Second Letter, showcases a different world of melodic darkness, that helps to reframe their initial, slower release, “Dead Emblems.” With chants in the chorus of “ruins of our remains,” Haworth points out that whatever part of humanity is left at this stage continues to deteriorate through the sick relationship we keep with the dying, yet seductive capitalist system. A huge backdrop of powerful drumming, coupled with an interesting layering of keys and guitars over the top, calcifies the song’s message, and neutralizes the acidic, sardonic notion that resistance is futile.
