Following a pretty tumultuous year after frontman Jonny Craig‘s ousting, Slaves (the US one) bounced back with new frontman Matt McAndrew who slid right into the role and helped the band release their bangin’ track ‘Prayers‘ in November and set them up for the future!
Now, they’ve released their latest offering ‘Talk To A Friend‘ and it’s gonna have you saying Jonny who? The song is about appreciating yourself and not beating yourself up in times of need. We’re all in this big game of life together and first and foremost you need to look after yourself on a daily basis.
On the new song, McAndrew revealed:
“The lyrical concept is something I’ve wanted to write for a long time. Being most unkind to yourself — saying things to yourself that you’d never say to a friend — is something I think will resonate with people. Musically, it’s this great mix of pretty and ethereal sounds with more dark, brooding, and heavy elements. I’m really stoked with how the video turned out on this one. Our director Aaron Berkshire did a killer job.”
Need some uplifting tunes to get you through a hard time, get this into ya!
