The track follows their excellent debut single ‘side by side’.

Following their explosive emergence on debut single ‘side to side’, headcage look well on their way to establishing themselves as a real force in the UK alternative music scene. Blessed with an abundance of energy, poise and a unique sound that melds heaviness with melodic in a way that feels seamless.

The latest release from the outfit comes from a more melodic place of sadness and sincerity, and provides a thoughtful piece of imagery about how our lives and memories can often fragment and things can work out differently to what we hope for or remember. There are some really nice moments of nuance here, and the track’s chorus has a huge sense of catharsis and vastness that anchors the track excellently. Another stellar release from an outfit that continue to establish different facets to their sound.
