THECITYISOURS release their self-reflective new single ‘So Sad’ taken from the band’s sophomore album “COMA”. The album is set for release on 22nd October 2021 via Arising Empire.
All good things must come to an end, and ‘So Sad’ is about just that. Speaking on their latest song, Mikey Page remarks:
So Sad is about trying to come to terms with the decision to end something you feel is great and processing the subsequent fallout. This was an interesting one for us as the lyrics came from two completely separate viewpoints. We have always been advocates for making music people can relate to in their own way and take from it what they need. This was the first time we really explored that idea consciously within ourselves to collaborate in a way that told both angles of the story, leaving the door open for interpretation from the listener.
“COMA” was recorded, engineered, and mixed by long-time collaborator Oz Craggs (FEED THE RHINO, NECK DEEP, MALLORY KNOX) at Hidden Track Studios and mastered by Ermin Hamidovic (ARCHITECTS, PERIPHERY, NORTHLANE) at Systematic Productions.
