Crossing The Limits Release Debut Video For 'Won't Settle'
New kids on the block, Norwich’s Crossing The Limits, have unveiled their debut music video. ‘Won’t Settle’ is the quintet’s bright and infectiously catchy first step, with vocalist Rachael Holland commenting: “We shot this video just outside of Leicester with Jay Hillyer. We chose this song to be our debut single as it's uplifting and really shows what we're about. We want to make people feel good and empowered with our music. This song really is about standing by who you are and what you want, and to know you have to walk away from anything that isn't serving your happiness.”
The single is taken from their debut EP entitled ‘Perseverance’ which will be self-released on 6th April 2018. Holland sets the scene: “Its about walking through the storm. Life gets rough, but you have to keep going. You can't just sit there in your rut and give up, you have to persevere through set backs to grow.”
Completed by Tom Colmans and Dan Smith on Guitar, Tim Clements on Bass and Ben Brennan on Drums, Crossing The Limits came together thanks to ‘the internet’, with Holland recalling: “I'd just gotten out of another band I'd been in for a few years, but it had reached a point where we weren't all on the same page anymore. I felt pretty disheartened but I knew that I wasn't done. I began searching online for members to start a new band with, who were all committed and driven. Our ambition is for our music to uplift people and inspire them to be who they are.”
With the line-up complete, the members set about writing material, drawing upon lessons they had learned over the past year. Not all of the songs made the cut, but after 4 months the band had the material that would become the record. Recorded at Steel City Studios with Drew Lawson and mastered by Grant Berry at Fader, Holland fondly recalls: “Staying in a budget hotel, living off of fast food and being around each other all the time brought us all closer together, and we really got to know each other and how to agree to disagree sometimes. These guys are my best friends, and the support we give each other is amazing, they're my brothers.” Naming Neck Deep, Tonight Alive, State Champs and Against The Current amongst their influences, on ‘Perseverance’ Crossing The Limits offer up a delightfully energetic and uplifting dose of posi-pop-punk. Holland concludes: “Our sound is very uplifting and strong. In 3 words I'd say the sound on this EP is empowering, uplifting, and unapologetic.”
