So imagine my reaction when this song slid across my desk. The official press release says,
“On the surface, it’s about looking after a friend who’s had a bad turn on a night out: That moment of immediate clarity you have when “something isn’t right and I need to do something about it”, but I guess it’s just about pulling people back from the edge when they aren’t feeling 100%.”
At any given point in any day, find me a person that's feeling 100%. I don't think you're going to be able to but this song tells you that you are wholly within your rights to not have to feel that way all the time. It's fine to acknowledge all that is going on in your life; to accept that you are a fighter, a coward, you are a bit of everything mixed up into one but the trick is to make sure that the people in your life, the ones that know you and I mean really know you are there with you. They are along for the ride steadying you, reassuring you, bolstering you.
I've now listened to this song on repeat for the past 30 minutes so that I can just experience every single nuance and every single breath they're pumping into this and I have to say without a shadow of a doubt, this may be one of the most important songs I've heard in a long time. It's a song of hope. It's a song that reminds you to never ever give up.
We are all broken. We are all bruised. It's part of living and in the end we have to wear all those battle scars with pride but we have to remember that we are not alone and if takes four guys from London to give life to the emotions we're feeling then that's what we do. We let them. We become part of something with them and it's beautiful and it's good.
