What's Shouted In The Dark (The Dark Shouts Back) is pure ghost-rock, bringing together references from Ovid to the The Shangri-Las. It's a study in homicidal love from the POV of the killer, with a flick knife riff, pneumatic drums and themes of self-deception and destruction that impress themselves on the brain like a deranged Mount Rushmore.

First single to be taken from Alex Rex's latest album 'Paradise' - out Friday 30th July on Neolithic Recordings.
