In a press statement, lead vocalist Sam Strachan explained that the song served as a tribute to a late friend, Connor Egan.

“He meant a lot to both Ruby and I, so the song is special,” he says. “It’s a reminder he’s looking out for us and guiding us when we get lost.”

Fields had previously also written a song for Egan, ‘Conny’, which featured on her 2019 EP ‘Permanent Hermit’.

Beyond The Willows formed in early 2018, releasing a self-titled EP in April of that year. They then followed its release with a new single, ‘Coming Back’, in February 2019.

Fields, meanwhile, was last seen in March 2020 on a national tour supporting Dune Rats. She and her band will release a new single, ‘Pretty Grim’, to streaming services tomorrow after premiering it on triple j this morning.

Beyond The Willows will launch the single with a show at Brass Monkey in their hometown of Cronulla on Wednesday September 30.
