Single title? Embrace
What’s the song about? Embrace is about childhood innocence, embracing the inner child and holding onto that innocence in the face of adversity.
How long did it take to write/record? The acoustic intro was written by Ben as a teenager. It was then crafted over the past few years until we decided to incorporate it into the concept album.
Is this track from a forthcoming release/existing release? Embrace is the first single from the forthcoming concept album, Mother Mourned, due for release later in 2015.

What was inspiring you during the song’s writing and recording? Both Ben and I cared for our mothers who had serious illnesses before they passed away. The inspiration lyrically was thinking about ourselves as children, before life was turned upside down and holding onto innocence.
We’ll like this song if we like... Emotive songs with layers of depth and introspective lyrics.
Do you play it differently live? We play it the same live. We have a keyboard player joining the band which will add to the sound.
When and where is your launch/next gig? We are launching the single Embrace at UBERfest, 21 Feb at The Bridge Hotel, Rozelle.
