Next month, Chasing Cadence will be releasing their brand new single Dear Life. Ahead of it’s release, we caught up with the band to get a behind-the-scenes lowdown on the track. Check it out below!
On the writing and recording process
The writing process for the new material has been really relaxed this time around, Rob and Dan have set up a little DIY recording studio in their lounge where Rob can use his spare time to shell out the songs and demo them. He then sends the demo over to the rest of the band and we take it to the rehearsal rooms where we make tweaks and changes where necessary.
The story behind the song
As with all our music, we hope that our listeners always take something personal from the concept of the lyrics and this may not necessarily be the same interpretation that Rob had when writing it, but that’s the beauty of music right? This song in particular was written from the perspective of someone who was on the cusp of death but fighting to stay alive so that they could make amends with their loved one(s).
Why they chose Dear Life as a single
We chose this as a single because it’s quite different to anything else we’ve put together, we’ve started experimenting with native instruments and different writing and recording techniques too. But most of all we believe this is the most mature single we’ve written so far and something that we’re proud to release. Since this was written we’ve started working on loads more material to put towards a future album or whatever and we’re really excited to see how it shapes up in comparison to Dear Life.
Dear Life is released on May 25. Stay tuned for more information and for now you can watch their video for previous single Paper Sails below.
