Frontman Adam Leader spoke of the single, saying:
“We spend our entire lives continuously setting the bar of career and financial success to unobtainable heights, which can be dangerous because it’s incredibly easy to lose sight of what actually makes all the difference; love, friendship and the beauty of the world we live in.
It’s too easy to take for granted the happiness right before our eyes in the shadow of our own pursuit of material fulfilment that suddenly, our short time in this world has come to an end, but that realisation can often come too little too late.”
Speaking on the band’s continued growth, Leader continues:
“We spent the best part of a decade with this idea that it would be wrong or too risky to branch out musically into genres leaning towards the pop end of the spectrum – even though we’ve always dabbled in it here and there, we never fully embraced it.
These songs we have coming out over the year are the result of us finally finding our feet through personal hardships and a world stopping pandemic.
We have gained a collective clarity, picking up where we left off with the single ‘Rhythm’ back in 2020 – we have new music that we feel really pushes the poppier elements to the forefront of our sound and it’s a natural progression to us as a band – something we’ve always wanted to do but we were forever at a crossroads with the idea due to our own fears.
“The pandemic forced us to take stock and deal with some deeper questions and our musical direction was a big part of that whole process; in a way, the songs gave us the confidence to take ownership of being labelled a pop-metal band which has been subtly hinted at in the past. We can now wear that badge with pride.“
