After first breaking through back in 2019, Gently Tender, made up of ex-Palma Violets and Celia from The Big Moon, have now returned to deliver a brand new single.
The new track 'Dead Is Dead' marks their first piece of material in three years, was produced by Matthew E. White during lockdown in Wales’ Rockfield Studios, as the band ready the release of their long-awaited debut album.
Speaking about the new offering, frontman Sam Fryer said, “Dead is Dead is a positive mantra on the subject of death. I’m speculating the destiny of the human soul - how we may all connect and where that might be after death. I’m using my voice to its full potential in this song, like a rallying call. I’m saying - maybe we’re not alone in death - there is part of our consciousness that does carry on in some form. I fluctuate on this subject matter, but the majority of the time I do believe this. I think it’s important to be aware of death at all times, I think of my own death most days, but not in a morbid way - it helps me appreciate and refocus on what I’m trying to do - to know if what I’m doing is worth it. It’s a hopeful song, I’m excited to play it live.”
