Another Sky have revealed their new single Brave Face and a UK tour in April which includes a Manchester gig at Soup Kitchen.
The track is out now via Fiction Records and is taken from their upcoming debut album which is due for release later this year.
Speaking about the track, vocalist and lyricist Catrin Vincent commented, “Brave Face was written for a friend ending a bad relationship. I saw so many parallels between her situation and my own. The lyric ‘you put on your brave face, now, girl’ is something an ex once said to me. To me, putting on a ‘brave face’ means hiding struggle and living in denial. I wanted to reclaim those words and transform them in to a war cry for myself and her. Instead of telling us to ‘suck it up’, I’m telling us to use our anger instead. The world tells women that if we get angry, we lose our softness and what makes us a woman. That’s not true. I’m asking us to accept our anger as necessary, in order to protect ourselves.”
Another Sky are set to release their debut album in 2020.
Another Sky have also announced a run of seven UK tour tours culminating with a Manchester gig at Soup Kitchen.
