“The Last Man” is an advance taste of the forthcoming Sol Invictus album “Necropolis”. The single’s a-side with its catchy rhythm and vocal line is a potential Sol Invictus live classic, yet succeeds in adding a new dimension to the group’s sound cosmos by incorporating a full choir. The b-side, “Your Master’s Voice”, is an exemplary Sol Invictus track and exclusive to this single.
As always, Tony Wakeford explains the core of the title song in his very own way: “‘The Last Man’ is an echo from dead London. The bells of London gossip amongst the smog of capitalism and industry. A child’s nursery rhyme accompanied by booming bass and thudding drums. In one hand a candle to light you to bed, in the other a chopper to cut off your head. Now close your eyes and choose.”
