We are so happy to announce that our next single will be called ‘Aint Nobody Got Me Here But Me’ and it will be out on 29th January 2021. It is available to Pre-Save on Spotify now by clicking HERE.
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
We are so excited to announce that the next single in our monthly singles series will be called “Shadows On The Wall” and it will be out on 8th May. The single was due to come out at the end of April, but due to delays with distribution etc due to the crazy times we are going through at the moment.
The single is now available to Pre-Save on Spotify now by clicking HERE.
The artwork for the single is a specially commissioned illustration (by artist Becvardoodles). The illustration is a hard hitting image capturing the literal meaning of the lyrics and how the abuser torments its victim.
The song recounts the tale of a family secret, one that has been known about but been denied for years. The story recounts a tale of child abuse and how it is hidden within the family. The victim just remembers seeing the “Shadows On The Wall” that came to visit every night, haunting the victim like a demonic ghost. As the story moves on the character decides to go back and face the fear of going home and facing the demons of the past. But they find the courage to go back and they set about laying the past to rest with explosive measures.
Probably, the darkest lyrics and subject the duo have tackled. But we felt it was important to let listeners see the deeper and darker side to us and our writing. To fit in with the theme of the song we explored a harder musical feel. With heavier guitars and a beefier production. One of the joys of this monthly single campaign is we are free to explore different sounds and musical ideas. Something that has been very liberating for us as a duo. As we can let the song itself take the lead, taking us wherever it wants to go.
Proud to be DIY artists Chantelle and Chris recorded, produced and mixed the song themselves at their studio Renegade Studios. With Chantelle and Chris playing all the instruments on the track. Apart from the Drums, which were tracked by Session Drummer Chris Brush in Nashville, TN. The track was Mastered by Pete Maher (U2, Rolling Stones, The Killers, Snow Patrol and many more).
