Tom had just joined the band, and we only managed one rehearsal before the death toll began increasing rapidly. I started shielding to protect my mother a few weeks before we really saw the impact of what was to come. As the country went into lockdown, we knew this was a make or break scenario for the band.
To get to know Tom further, we felt it would be a fitting idea to start writing and working on a few new tracks. What started as a project to test the waters, something that would keep us occupied and motivated, quickly became something more. There was a spark that couldn’t be ignored.
After a while, lockdown took its toll on me - causing me to lose all inspiration. Time passing by rapidly, songs gathering dust, whilst spiralling into a really dark place. There were thoughts shared, tears shed, and many sleepless nights.
We have created something that all of us are immensely proud of, and feel is an important body of work for us. It’s a raw capture of a frightening, traumatic moment in time that all of us will remember for the rest of our lives.
To anybody who has lost, grieved, struggled or helped to get us all through this pandemic, this one’s for you.” - Ethan
