THE SHORT CAUSEWAY heading home
OUT now from Hebden Bridge’s three-piece THE SHORT CAUSEWAY, a low-key yet infectious slice of their trademark, rainy-day prose, ‘On My Way Home.’
A fidgety, complex soundtrack to watching raindrops run down windows and chin-on-folded-arms hours wasted away in wait, the return of the band both to the studio and stage comes after a year of exile, immersed in the necessities of A-Level textbooks, revision, and exams.
Of the new single, a statement released by the band said, “’On My Way Home’ is one of the songs we are most proud of and really connect with – we all teared up when we first heard the mix of it.
“It touches on mundanity in a melancholic way, telling a story that is filled with boredom, waiting while on a journey and longing to be anywhere else. But it’s really just a fun track, mimicking the journey itself. It’s better describing being at a loss in the past, than being at a loss in the present.”
Initially renowned as a reliable house band at the Trades Club in Hebden Bridge, the trio, Claudie Nicholson (guitar/vocals), Rufus Stott-Leach (drums) and Hayden Davey (bass/vocals) stayed up late on school nights to pick up regular support slots and masterclasses from touring bands including Katy J. Pearson and Peaness.
