Exploring Birdsong Share New Single “Bear the Weight”
Acclaimed young alt-pop/prog trio Exploring Birdsong have released their new single/video ‘Bear The Weight’, the second single off their new EP, Dancing in the Face of Danger, due out March 24 via Long Branch Records.
“‘Bear the Weight’ has gone through a few different structure changes since we first formed the skeleton for the song back in 2019, but contains one of our collective favourite choruses. Lyrically it is one of the most conceptual on the record; it is written from the perspective of one of thousands of workers, working on a building / structure of massive scale against their will. They are merely a number, and the only thing to relieve them of their duties is death – however they know they will only be replaced by someone else, so to prevent someone going through what they have experienced, they continue. ‘We bear the weight, to defend the man who would fall in your place’.”
