We first told you about Quarter-Life Crisis (aka Ryan Hemsworth) back in early October when we came across the exceptional single for Postcard from Spain. Well, Ryan is back with another single from the upcoming record, You & Me featuring Claud. The new EP also features contributions from Frances Quinlan of Hop Along, Meg Duffy of Hand Habits, Charlie Martin of Hovvdy and Yohuna.
Claud had this to say about the track: “Ryan sent me a bunch of really pretty guitar tracks around the time I had just moved to New York… it was a new city, I was alone, and I was definitely deep in my feels. The song sorta turned into a yearning winter love song. When I sent it back to him after I wrote it I asked him not to laugh at me for the corny-ness of the lyrics… sometimes lyrics just need to say it like it is.“

“Lyrically it’s about weathering storms. It’s a love song but also felt really poignant personally during full pandemic lockdown this idea of weathering storms. Enduring them. Inhabiting them. Becoming them.”
