Enjoy this sweet video to our song 'Sunriser' from our new album. Read about the story behind the song below.

Sunriser is about a serious relationship ending and even though it ended because of choices or mistakes your partner made the burden is still on you to remain the strong one and keep them in a healthy place mentally. They're holding you ransom with their emotions meaning you're not allowed to be too angry or upset with them for what they did. They're protecting their own mistakes from criticism by physically showing you how badly their mental health is as a symptom of their mistakes. It's also about that feeling of letting your guard down and feeling like you're usually good at reading signs (and have even considered yourself a bit psychic) but you're blinded by love and the trust you've invested in someone over many years. You know that sensation of free-falling? It's like that, but the person who would usually catch you is the one who pushed you. It's a disheartening feeling but makes you realise you can only rely on yourself to feel grounded and positive again. Other's actions, apologies or regrets won't give you the closure you need to help you move on. You have to raise the sun yourself. The song explores the feelings of grief you get after something has ended- switching between feeling hopeless and then hopeful. Going back in time to try and recapture the comfort of the past or make things how they were before won't help you feel alive again. Shortly after this happened we went on a European tour.
