‘Take Me Back’ has Lola Scott dreaming of the early days

(But don't worry, she's resolute in her perspective)

(But don’t worry, she’s resolute in her perspective)

Written in the wake of a long-term relationship break-up, Lola Scott recalls the sweeter early days in new single ‘Take Me Back’. It’s the follows last year’s release ‘Loveless’ and is her first single of 2020.

An energised slice of pop, ‘Take Me Back’ is underpinned by punchy beats, bright synths and hook-laden choruses. Scott’s vocal is throaty and emotive, whilst her lyrics tell a succinct and clear story of the demise of a romance. As painful as it palpably is, her perspective is strong and resolute.

“I wrote ‘Take Me Back’ in the perspective of being at the end of a long term relationship, and reminiscing on when you first met and how easy it is to dive into something new with no fears and no walls up,” shares the Sydney-based artist of her new track. “Especially with those big loves of your life its easy to throw logic and overthinking out the window when you start seeing someone without being prepared to work through the struggles that most people face when a relationship gets more serious.

“In the second verse, I skip to the present when I was writing the song and the relationship was hanging on by a thread and I’d lost sight of myself. I found myself holding onto the feelings of nostalgia from the start of the relationship instead of letting go, even though it had evolved into something toxic for both of us. Writing these types of songs helps me regain perspective of how I’m really feeling.

‘Take Me Back’ is available now.
