‘Coprolite Tip’, which follows previous single, ‘Return of the Sun’, has an unlikely and unlovely subject: coprolite is fossilised faeces, mined for use as fertiliser in Victorian times. The track began as an anonymous voicemail to Grasscut HQ which told of the beauty of dragonflies at dusk at one such mine – the location of a fatal lightning strike in 1873. The track is based around these moments of brightness over a dramatic electronic backdrop with staccato electric guitar and multitracked violin.
