Swedish band Pale Honey release their new single 'Set Me Free', the first new music from the band since 2017 album 'Devotion'.
'Set Me Free' started as a mere sketch in the dawning age of Pale Honey but has since been transformed into "a lead track about freeing yourself from others’ comments and opinions", says Pale Honey drummer, Nelly Daltrey. Musically somewhere in-between light 80’s disco and sad 90’s indie, it balances on a knife edge, perfectly.
A melancholic yet groove-laden track, it can be treated as a liberating experience in itself, songwriter and guitarist Tuva Lodmark explains: “To me, the song symbolizes the emotions following a recent break-up. I was pissed and bitter, and at the same time regretful and sad. There was also an energy in me that was about to explode. I couldn’t be still, couldn’t sit at home, I had to go out and constantly meet new people. Everything had to happen, and it needed to happen all at once. The danceable element of the song represents the stage in a separation where you’re rediscovering yourself. Or simply going out into the night and not getting home until dawn.”
