we’ve been a fan of Scatterchild for a while now, with their beautiful piano melodies, lovely soundscapes, Jay’s fantastic vocal ability and top songwriting ๐Ÿ˜Š this new song is yet another in a long line of great releases!

a more touching subject with this song, it deals with the harder parts of a relationship and the emotion conveyed in this track is sublime โœŠ building from the start, it really pushes through the feelings that they’re trying to portray and as it travels through the track, it builds up and up til the end where it explodes into a massive outburst of energy and raw feeling! what a tune! โค๏ธ
