Gently Tender - the band featuring ex-Palma Violets Sam Fryer, Pete Mayhew and Will Doyle alongside The Big Moon’s Celia Archer and guitarist Adam Brown - have unveiled their debut single.
‘2 Chords Good’ is, according to Sam, about a conversation he had with a friend in a pub. “The song is essentially me replaying that moment in my mind, and almost kicking myself about my average and weak response [‘Probably yeah’] to her question, ‘Are you going to put some more chords on your new album?’” He continues, “The song is me talking to myself … and making excuses like I was feeling ‘kinda stressed that day’. I had been suffering with anxiety at the time of the meeting, but as I gradually formulate what the answer should have been, I cultivate pictures in my mind of visions and scenes that move me; memories of ‘golden evenings’ and ‘sunlit canals’ and songs that I have loved.” - DIY Mag
