All music lovers are counting the moments until live concerts and festivals return, and Amber Lawrence has summed this up in her latest single, Bring It Back.
Written from the perspective of someone standing in the audience with their on a balmy summer night with a drink in their hands and their favourite artist is about to walk on stage.
“Music still hasn’t returned to that point where there are no restrictions and when I wrote the song, I was visualizing myself at Gympie,” Amber said.
“Big festivals have had to cancel and there is so much that goes with that for the artists, support services, food providers and the fans and others involved in the industry.
“For a lot of people, going to festivals and concerts is their hobby where they catch up with their mates and they only know them because they met them in the mosh pit somewhere.”
Although we are all missing the live music scene being what it used to be, Bring It Back isn’t a sad song; it’s a positive message as we look forward to getting back to doing what we love.
“The song has that party vibe that this will happen eventually, but there’s some real nostalgia in it, too, especially for the bigger artists – they haven’t worked for two years,” Amber said.
“I hope it’s got some nostalgia in it for a lot of people. This is a different style for me and is the first song off the album and shows I am moving forward in my sound and pushing the boundaries a little, but Bring It Back is not necessarily representative of the sound on the new album.”
