"Someone who's had enough of their lover messing them around by not committing and feels like they're being untrue to themselves."
Single title: Untrue
What's the song about? Someone who's had enough of their lover messing them around by not committing and feels like they're being untrue to themselves.
How long did it take to write/record? It was initially written in around 30 minutes, by myself and keyboarder Toby Alexander, as a ballad. However in pre-production, myself and producer Brendan Anthony decided to give a more upbeat tempo. Love how it's evolved.
Is this track from a forthcoming release/existing release? This is my latest single, being released and promoted through my shows around Brisbane, Sunshine and Gold Coasts over the coming weeks and will be included on my forthcoming EP, being released early next year.
