The rain has been falling here for three days now, so it has been a bit dreary around here. Actually, it is days like this that are my favorite, the darkness of the sky, the sound of distant thunder and the rain hitting against the window in front of me. It makes me want to grab a cozy blanket and snuggle up with some music and a good book. It isn’t any type of music I like when it is like this, I want moody soft music, with just a hint of darkness and Ella Grace Denton‘s new single Here We Go Again is just perfect when it comes to all those things.
Here We Go Again is telling of a love lost to depression and the journey onward from that space. Ella writes as if the future of this lost love were the present. A story of love in her twenties and the attempt to cope with mental health struggles, heartache, and personal growth at such a young age.
When speaking of her ideas on the recording she says:
“It’s really important to me that when we go into the studio to build the track, we build it in-keeping with the energy that the song was written in. In Here We Are Again we used the sounds of birds that we recorded from the wall of the cottage I grew up in, a place I spent a lot of time during this period of my life. There are so many subtle elements in all of my songs that make them meaningful to me, and I have a feeling that people, maybe without even realizing it, are left feeling my music pretty deeply because of this”.
