It’s a new day, and a new chance to begin again. Sometimes you need to make a fresh start, and today’s lyric video exclusive is gonna spark that change. GROVES’ new track “Faded Love” is a dark and brooding indie-rock masterpiece, with a bright message: Even when things doesn’t work out the way you want, you should never stop chasing your dreams.
“More than anything, to me this song is a reminder to live the life you want to live and to never stop chasing what you want. ‘Don’t turn around, this is what you came for.'”
– Stephen Salisbury
GROVES released their brilliant first EP Not For Nothing earlier this year, and “Faded Love” adds yet another gem to their growing collection. You can learn more about the band and their music below with their very own idobi Tell Me—they share the special meaning behind their EP artwork, and talk about that time Will got punched in the face (and was happy about it). Keep scrolling to watch their Tell Me, and read what the band have to say about “Faded Love” as it pulls you in.
“‘Faded Love’ is a song about growth and the start of a new chapter. Over time, we learn to come to terms with people and relationships coming and going in our life. The important ones leave a more profound mark on you than others. This song is about getting to a place in a relationship, where both sides decide to go their separate ways. Everyone is entitled to a dream they want to make a reality. Everyone has a vision of a life that they want to live, and that’s ok. ‘Time won’t always heal these things that make us human.’
More than anything, to me this song is a reminder to live the life you want to live and to never stop chasing what you want. ‘Don’t turn around, this is what you came for.'”
– Stephen Salisbury (vocals/guitar)
“We’ve been writing a lot of new fresh stuff and have big plans in 2018, but before parting ways with this year we wanted to put out Faded Love, a song we’ve been playing live and had recorded for a few years now. I remember the original idea for this song came after a very specific event that happened to us three together, it was one of those things where we got that phone call we’ve been waiting for our entire lives after going through some of our toughest times and lowest lows. You never know how fast your life can take a turn and at any given time you could be ‘one second away’ from everything you’ve ever wanted.”
– Reid Guidry (bass/keys)
