The new single ‘Rush’ follows the pompous expression from the previous single ‘Turn’, but it also continues the more melancholic threads from their debut EP ‘The Day Will Come’ from 2017.
The reason for this melancholy is mainly due to the lyrics and its recipients, explains the singer and songwriter Magnus Jacobsen: “I have written this song as a tribute to my old bandmates from Dance With Dirt. I’ve been through thick and thin with them; from our very first rehearsal In Aalborg back in 2007 – to being victorious in KarriereKanonen in 2012 – to the great funeral at HeadQuarters in Aarhus, November 2016. It has been 9 mindblowing years which I personally hold very dear and they have made me who I am today. Kristoffer, Jess, Mikkel, Jonathan and Joakim – this one is for you.”
’Rush’ was also produced by Mads Björn with whom the band have been working exclusively and that is not likely to change anytime soon, if you ask the band. Bassist Marie Linander says: “We feel that Mads has a very special – almost magical – ability to bring out the best in our songs, which we don’t take for granted. He adds an important uniqueness to our songs and sound in general.
Did you call me in the dead of night?
With your heart up in your throat to fight
About all the times you never tried,
And hang up for the morning light
Did you hold it dear, our wonderland?
Where the coast is clear and nothing is planned
Like a ghost you sit and watch your hand,
As it slowly fades out with the man you know
‘Cause you’ve got to let him go
Was it everything you said you wanted?
Was it everything you thought we would be?
‘Cause the only thing that makes you stronger,
Are the cuts that make you bleed
And you can blame it on a million reasons,
Why so much of us remain untouched
Well we all need something to believe in,
As our bodies seek the rush
Was the aim too high or shot too low?
Did the rain wash off the bullets glow?
Guess we’ll never find out, never know,
If we ever really left the hole?
Well the earth is warm and the sky is sick,
When this curse is gone, then let us dig up
All the worst, the best
And kick off all the dirt that keeps us to the ground
And go another round?
A real love
Can you find a real love?
Well it’s got to be the real love,
But you keep running from me
