Wake is a song about life and death. There is so much beyond your control, we are all in the same situation and no one knows what is going to happen next. We hang on to what we see as important but everything is in a constant state of change. This is about knowing that nothing is really permanent; we live for a while, then we are gone.
And so goes the inspiration behind “Wake,” the latest track from Racing Glaciers. We touched upon this powerful number not long ago when previewing the Macclesfield outfit’s new EP, Ahead Of You Forever, a six-track collection of beautiful, gripping indie rock. It happens to come out today — grab your copy here — so to celebrate we’re premiering the aforementioned epic EP closer here on ATG. Stream it below.
As an added bonus, we’re premiering a video of Racing Glaciers performing “Wake” at one of Sofar Sounds‘ secret London shows back in October as part of their and the Line Of Best Fit’s Sofar Tour. Makes us wish we we there. Watch it below.
