MUSIC NEWS: Unpeople Sign To SharpTone Records & Release Video For Debut Single ‘Smother’
unpeople have announced their signing to SharpTone Records.
“Since the inception of unpeople, SharpTone was at the top of our list in terms of who would be our dream label to work with,” the band says. “We have such respect for the team and what they do. It is evident to us that they are equally as passionate about the music as we are. We are extremely excited to be part of such an awesome roster and feel very privileged to be able to call SharpTone our home.”
To celebrate, the band have released a video for their new single smother.
“smother is a song born of unfiltered introspection and sheer desperation,” explains frontman Jake Crawford. “The intentionally prying first line “are you being honest with yourself?” was more of a question to myself let alone the potential audience. Myself and Luke were certainly “feeling the pressure” at the time of the song’s inception. Having come off the back of two massive breakups, one band and one personal, we were literally scrambling for “something to live for”. Lyrically, it was a collaborative effort. Luke came up with the chorus which I immediately connected with. It then inspired me to really dig into the suffocating feeling of being at a complete loss of direction at the time. The rest came relatively easily as we were certainly in similar boats, albeit from slightly differing perspectives.”
