You released your new single ‘Mirrors’, tell us more about the single.
Idea was a simple one, trying to reflect the emotions coming from the track, the song itself is about the lead singer TONY GOFF, and his journey basically becoming a better man and references Loving again, and looking in the Mirror the song is about Self Reflection.
What is the meaning behind the single?
The meaning is about self improvement and self reflection, trying to change our errant ways covid lockdown gave us all time to think, the song was written to remind Tony he has to open up more and all focus on being the best version of himself.
What was the writing and recording process like?
This particular song was quite swift in terms of writing, s it’s a fairly simple tune the band picked it up and put their stamp on it very quickly, but 1st off when tony was writing it, it just fell on to the page and Tony feels a close connection to this track, once we got it in the studio we started mucking about with harmonies and adding the trumpet, were really proud how it came out.
