We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of The Ones You Forgot’s new song “Here Forever” (listen below). The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming EP Too Afraid To Say, which is scheduled to be released on June 29th. The single is a down to the earth hook driven tune with sweeping refrains, glowing melodies and a relatable set of lyrics. The guitar leads wind behind the steady rhythms, finding their groove behind the powerful vocal approach and gracing the track with a decadent atmosphere. Listen below and have fun getting this tune out of your head.
Jenna Bruno of The Ones You Forgot commented on the song:
‘Here Forever’ – though one of the catchiest songs on the EP, it is also one of the darkest. ‘Here Forever’ encompasses the notion that you can never be ready for the death of a loved one. The song is all about the fear of losing someone forever, and being worried that you didn’t have enough time to spend with them. The verses of the song are presented as if the person you are afraid to lose is sick or suffering in some way. I wrote this part hypothetically, because I was not going through it myself at that time. However, not long after this song was recorded, my mom was diagnosed with cancer. It was like the song came to life, and it took on a whole new meaning to me. Fortunately, my mom is doing amazing and is almost finished with her treatment. Either way, though everyone handles these types of situations differently, I know this song represents something that everyone may face at some point in life.
Too Afraid To Say was produced & mixed by Rob Freeman at Audio Pilot Studios, and mastered by Rogue Planet Mastering.
Jenna Bruno continues on the EP:
In some way, shape, or form, each song on the EP tells a story of something I was LITERALLY too afraid to say, whether that be to a loved one, someone who hurt me, or even to myself. Even though I wrote the lyrics myself, this collection of songs has taught me that fear is a very normal feeling, and that we all battle it in different ways.
