London based Holly Henderson is back with a reflective new single ‘Back After Sunrise‘ from her critically acclaimed sophomore album The Walls. Glowing with gorgeous harmonies against a retro psych-pop backdrop, Back After Sunrise is a song about the end of a chapter and how we look idealistically at the time spent, when it’s all nearly over.
“It’s specifically about when I was ready to leave my home, to start a new life in America, before the lockdown”, says Henderson. “But it was so obviously the wrong choice. But not every decision to walk away from something is rooted in hating someone or something, sometimes it’s just not right, and that’s almost worse. But we soothe ourselves ‘I do my little dance, where we all pretend, we’ll be back after sunrise’, until we’re ready to move on.”, she explains.
The track, which escalates from soft glimmering melancholia into a fuzzy epic, comes from Holly’s long-awaited album, “he Walls, where the singer songwriter shows a very different side to her musicality and depth. While her debut album, Monday Green featured Holly’s impressive rock guitar work and alternative pop anthem prowess, her new work shows a more introspective, and slightly more delicate side to her songcraft.
Back After Sunrise is available now on Ivy RecRods.
