Swindon’s All Ears Avow have recently released a soaring melodic single for which they are swiftly becoming known. ‘Feel The Push’ is, ultimately, about depression but offers a message of hope. As vocalist and guitarist Claire Sutton says: “It’s written as a sort of message to anyone suffering, from the perspective of having come through it to the other side and offering this message of hope. That even though someone is in pain and finding it hard right now they will get through it and into the light. The song is full of angst and pain both musically and lyrically, but ends with this almost euphoric sense of making it out alive.”
The track will combine with previously released ‘Be That Nothing’, ‘L.O.V.E.’, ‘Asleep At The Wheel’ and several brand new compositions to comprise a new EP, also titled ‘Feel The Push’. The collection will be self released by the band on 21 October.
Sutton says: “This EP has been the biggest labour of love for us and something we’ve been working on for the last two years, mostly throughout lockdowns like so many other artists at the moment. The main thing that glues this EP together is the message and lyrical journey, which is a reflection of what everyone has been through since 2020. The last two years have been absolutely mental for society. There’s been the pandemic, riots, toilet roll shortages, catastrophic wild fires, Russia invading Ukraine, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Everyone’s either been desperately trying to keep themselves afloat or they’ve been in complete denial that the public hysteria we’ve been experiencing so much of is of our own making. And that’s what this EP is about. We decided to name the EP ‘Feel The Push’ after the closing track, because it encompasses the message that when life or the world gives you a nudge or a push, you shouldn’t ignore it. In other words, when everything is going catastrophically wrong maybe we should look at it.”
