FOLLOWING a flurry of releases in 2021, Beafets are back and kicking off the new year in style with new single ‘Falling Knives’.
Known for pulling on the heartstrings with their confessional indie ballads, the new track marks a significant step up for the outfit – both in terms of songwriting and production.
With Adam McMonagle’s strong vocals brought to the forefront, there’s a warm, nostalgic feel to the instrumental as he delivers a rousing sermon on mental health and finding the best out of a bad situation. Ebbing and flowing between understated verses and invigoratingly heartfelt choruses, it’s nothing short of anthemic.
Speaking of the track, they say “Don’t waste a crisis, it’s not always like this”. This was the first line written during the height of lockdown and its message would become the focal point of the track. The aim was to write an anthem that could inspire people to see the best in a bad situation. Whilst the lyrical content in the verses is heavy, we wanted the chorus to counterpoint this with a positive message and be backed up by uplifting instrumentals”
A definite growth point for the band, ‘Falling Knives’ could mark the beginning of an exciting year for Beafets.
They headline 13th Note in Glasgow on 26th February.
