Sung from a female’s perspective (presumably Van’s girlfriend), “Hourglass” reflects on the strain of her relationship with frontman Van McCan while he tours with Catfish and the Bottlemen. The title presents a constant imbalance in their relationship – as one heart fills up, the other heart empties: hourglass.
The track appears on the band’s debut album, The Balcony. The music video was released on May 14th, 2015, featuring Scottish actor Ewan McGregor.
