While gearing up for the release of IV, which drops on October 23rd, The Elwins have shared a new track called “Daughter Song.”
The Elwins’ Francesco Figliomeni explains the inspiration by the track:
“This song was a bit of a trip for me. The lyrics and melody both basically came in one sitting and I felt really good about it. Even though I didn’t quite know what it was I was saying I felt really in tune with the emotion of it. We decided pretty early on in the process that we wanted to have some sort of string arrangement for it so we got in touch with the great Trey Pollard from Spacebomb Records whose work we have been fans of for a while now. In talking with him it really felt like he knew what we were going for and funnily enough in his description of his arrangement he kinda summarized the song better than I had been able to: ‘the swimming feeling of getting lost thinking about the complexities of life.'”
