Sounds | The Commoners - See You Again



Eens opgepikt halfweg 2022 en dan terug helemaal uit het oog verloren. Ik schreef toen:

"Dertien in een dozijn roots rock, maar daarom helemaal niet slecht!" en dat kan ik opnieuw beamen. Ik hou van dat type zang, de onderliggende Hammond die het geheel een extra vet geluid geeft, de pianostukjes, gitaren en het feit dat dergelijke songs erg goed in het oor liggen. Brokken maken doen de Canadezen ook nu niet, daarentegen doen ze ook absoluut niets mis met hun nieuwe single. Benieuwd of ze deze keer wat meer blijven hangen.


Restless verschijnt op 5 juli 2024 via Gypsy Soul Records

An emotionally compelling roots anthem, “See You Again” is an ode to love and loss, good times and memories made, featuring a chorus fit for kicking up dust on the backroads with the windows down. Full-bodied acoustic guitar guides this track through contemplation to celebration.


The new single is a tribute to the father of Commoners drummer Adam Cannon, who passed away when the band were on tour in the UK in 2023.


“We were in Sheffield when we received the news,” remembers Commoners lead singer, Chris Medhurst.   “Halfway through our first UK tour, Adam was faced with the impossible decision if he should fly back to Canada to be with his father in his final moments. Greg, being a drummer himself, wanted nothing more than for Adam to keep going and make the family name proud. But the decision still weighed heavily on Adam and the band, as nothing felt like the right path forward.”


“A couple of days later in Birmingham, the decision was made for us. We played for Greg that night and have continued to do so every night since. "See You Again" is a song inspired by and dedicated to Greg. It’s also a message that each of us has been able to contextualize within our own lives, honouring the memory of people we’ve loved and lost. It’s a tribute that stretches across the sands of time as an ode to those who are no longer with us. We hope fans enjoy it and that it will resonate with those who have experienced loss in their lifetime.”
