The song itself is probably the most personal song we have ever written. It is written about the inner battles we face as independent musicians and all the sacrifices we make in the pursuit of our dreams. Be it a steady income, the ability to have a comfortable life, the ‘normal’ life path and of course dealing with the constant rejection. Knowing that your love of music will carry you forward. However, what happens when love isn’t enough to get you through and you want to give up. But we learn to accept this situation and as much as we may moan about it and wish for a more comfortable life we know that we cannot blame anyone for the decisions we make and we have to live with those decisions. There “ain’t nobody got me here but me”.
The song is written about the personal account of Chris and his most recent struggles of whether to continue with music or give up, realising that time may have indeed run out, especially as lockdown began and all planned work, festivals and tours were cancelled. Recalling the various stages of depression with lyrics that recall “spending my life thinking of a way I can make it out”. Also, the somewhat tragic yet witty recollection of buying a phone to make an urgent call for help only to find that the phone didn’t work. The song also recalls all the people who have come and gone and all the people who constantly tell you to “get a real job”. The song does however have a slight glimmer of hope when Chantelle spends her last pay cheque on a guitar as a declaration of faith and belief that everything will be alright.
You can also buy a limited edition CD of the single direct from us. These will be limited to only 50 copies and will be hand signed by us. You can get a copy below

Better Than This is an uplifting story which deals with the theme that no matter how hard things seem, they can always get better. It follows the two central characters. One, is a singer songwriter who is struggling hard playing in all the dive bars She can to make a go at being a successful musician. But no matter how hard they try they just can’t seem to make any progress. The second character a successful business Man who ends up loosing everything because they squandered all their money playing a game of keeping-up-with-the-Jones’. So they are forced to get a new job to rebuild everything. As the two characters continue on with their journeys they cross paths in the middle and realise that things will get better and they just have to keep working on their dreams.
This song recalls heavily on the duos love of storytelling and the musician character is semi-autobiographical, covering the struggles of being an independent musician in today’s world. Especially with the current climate where musicians main revenue stream is being pulled away from them due to the worldwide pandemic. But within that darkness we must have faith in our dreams and push through, knowing that things will indeed get better. A universal message for everyone.
