London’s THECITYISOURS kickstart a new chapter, as they release the first of their new material in the form of single 'Veins'.
“'Veins' is a very natural progression from previous tracks from THECITYISOURS. As it was the first song written following our ‘Hollow Hope’ EP, it still has the overall vibe people have come to know and love, catchy hooks mixed with dirty breakdowns, but it’s definitely got more of a mature feel with darker themes and lyrical content, exploring some of our most challenging experiences as people. In essence, the gloves have come off, with our new material. We chose to stick to our guns and write exactly what and how we felt at the time, which set a precedent for the the band as a whole moving forward.
It’s a very personal track, written around themes of loss and death, and the emotional journey that inevitably comes with it. We chose to pay homage to one of our earlier releases and write 'Veins' as a response to the message in that track. The lyrics are taken from the viewpoint of the person preparing to leave everything they’ve ever known behind and the various emotional stages that individual may experience. The track journeys from fear, to acceptance and everything in between”
