What was the inspiration/is there a story behind your track?

The song is about a man who has had his life planned out for him by others. Throughout the song he slowly realises that he doesn’t want to live like this anymore.

How did you write this song?

The lyrics were written by Stefanos (singer) but everything else was from rehearsal sessions. We basically just jammed different sections until we were happy. I remember the bass solo section of the song came from a joke about putting a bass solo in. We tried it and it actually worked, so we kept it!

Do you have a favourite line/section from this song?

“Where is your passion you freak? You’ve got nowhere to sleep.” – cracking!

Can you describe your sound in three words?

Melodic. Powerful. Dynamic.

How do you feel your sound has developed from studying here at BIMM?

BIMM has given us time to craft our sound. We spent two years figuring out what direction we wanted to go in. Without having time to practice, we would have struggled to commit so much time to gigging and rehearsing.

What’s the best thing about studying at BIMM?

We did our assessment as this band in our third year for the Ensemble module. Being able to perform our songs at the Concorde 2 was incredible. We had so much fun!
