London four piece Passport To Stockholm have just released their new single Better Days which is also the title track to their new EP which will be released on April 29th.
The single follows on from the All At Once EP that was released last year. Lead songwriters of the band, Chris Barney Barnard and Tom Piggott have been making music together since they were teenagers. The band is completed by percussionist/breakbeat specialist Henri Grimes and classically-trained cello player Mariona De Lamo. The EP has been produced and mixed by long term collaborators Carey Willetts (Jagaara, Athlete, Daniel James) and Gordon Mills jr (Ed Sheeran, Lucy Spraggan, Mark Morriss).
The band were forced into an extended break, allowing Mariona to recover from a long stint in hospital. The songs very much reflect a band energised by being reunited, making music that’s true to them.
Speaking on the new single, the band have said:
It’s a song about reassuring someone that you love, that everything is going to be OK in the end – even though right now it feels like the world is against you – and you’re going to be there for that person every step of the way, until the storm has passed and they come out the other side.
