Stream “Somebody Like You” HERE.
On the song the band said:
“We wrote 'Somebody Like You' in just a few hours in our rehearsal room,
playing and writing together as a band releases a special energy and we tried to capture that feeling on the record.
Lyrically we wanted to explore a vignette form of songwriting, telling different stories of different characters in each verse.
Something we‘ve never done before.”
On the track, bright guitars coast over a hypnotic beat punctuated by celestial chimes. The hook takes flight to the heavens with an undeniable and unshakable confession, “I let my guard down for the moment. Wherever you go, I’ll be going too. I’ve been waiting for somebody like you.” It stands out as another skyscraping arena-ready anthem.
Stay tuned for the premiere a high-energy music video to accompany the track.
It also lands in the wake of the fan favorite “Bedroom Exile.” Thus far, it has amassed over 5.3 million Spotify streams and counting.
