You Are Stuck - Story (Part 1)

Here’s part one of the story behind our single You Are Stuck which will be released on 1 May on all major digital platforms as told by Ollie. 

“Back in 2018 we were playing at the Chaos Festival (Guernsey) and usually before & after gigs, I like to chill quietly. After playing our set, I went in search of a place to chill. On the way (to wherever I was going), I came across a sign which said “The fog will lift”. It immediately resonated with me; I thought what a great message and a really nice positive thing to put out there. Later I found out it was put there by Sian Jones/Notes To Islanders. 

Fast forward to last Summer, when I was writing songs, I came up with a chord sequence which I played around with, reversed and then simplified. I sang some randoms words “You are stuck” to the melody (always intended to change them) and in that moment, I went back to that sign. It then made me think about times we all get stuck in a rut and the need to look up and be positive. 

The sign references fog and I thought about how the weather or nature could be used as a metaphor for when things go against you. Hence the first line starts “When the fog comes round” and the rest goes on to list other examples. 

I imagined being on L’ancresse beach when writing that verse. As with most songs I write, I try to keep the choruses simple and if possible with a message...and so the positive line “look up” was inserted. 

The next verse takes the first verse further forward and uses how you might feel when everything is going against you.”
