Gently Tender have shared their new single, ‘True Colours (Sometime I’ll Get Through)’.
It’s the latest cut from their 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: “’True Colours’ is a song that on the surface seems like a conversation between two people in a relationship. It’s actually based on a conversation between myself and unwanted emotions – like feelings of anxiety and depression. This is a regular theme on the record – on this song I’m studying and welcoming thoughts as if they are a long-lost friend. Showing interest in the feelings and showing them I’m willing to be patient with them. Once you welcome them in, they’re less of a threat. This is how I’ve learned to deal with these feelings that I have every day. Acceptance / invitation and patience is the key, and this song is about that.”
