CITY CALM DOWN
‘PRIDE’
(single taken from Echoes In Blue album out now through I OH YOU)

With their long-awaited second album Echoes In Blue out now, I OH YOU is thrilled to unveil ‘Pride’ – the brand new single and video from Melbourne’s City Calm Down.

“‘Pride’ explores the feelings of lashing out at loved ones due to personal insecurities, pushing them away without explaining why,says lead singer Jack Bourke.

The inspiration for ‘Pride’ comes from what was a difficult time for Bourke in his teenage years and early twenties, after he developed severe eczema affecting the skin on his face. “There were times when it was particularly bad – it looked like I’d experienced burns to a large part of my face – where I would withdraw from family and friends for months at a time, because I was so embarrassed by my appearance.” Bourke overcame these feelings of isolation, through support from his family and friends. ‘Pride’ is the first time he has tried to explore how he felt during that experience, and reinforces how lyricism and writing music has been such an instrumental tool in his life.
