Gently Tender have shared their new single, ‘Sunlight In Motion’.
It’s the latest cut from their not-long-announced debut album, ‘Take Hold Of Your Promise!’. Produced by Matthew E. White and recorded in Wales’ Rockfield Studios, it’s set for release on 26th August via So Young Records – the label’s first full-length album release.
Vocalist Sam Fryer says of the track: “This song is about self-reflection – ‘Sunlight catch a grip to your motion’ – I’m talking about when you are suddenly caught in a moment and you feel able to reflect on your life, and feel nostalgic for it, Like a DeJaVu that puts your life in perspective.
“That perspective shift and reflection – being able to observe from the outside. It’s also about how you’re going to move forward. Reflecting on yourself like an outer body experience – taking the emotion out and being able to observe and evolve as a person.
“It’s also about celebrating yourself and putting difficulties into context and learning from them as experiences. Putting things like being kind to yourself into practice. This is why we are called Gently Tender. Gently Tender is a mantra and reminder of how to treat yourself with kindness, love and compassion.”
