‘29’ is a daydream of childhood memories in chronological order, written by Tom on his 29th birthday. in earnest are an alt/indie trio from Southend-on-Sea, UK, fuelled by the songwriting of front-couple Tom and Sarah.
Tom states: “ The song is a collage of true stories that have shaped me, involving punching my dad at an ice rink (and regretting it), Chester Bennington and a friendly ghost. It reflects on how tedious life can become in adulthood and how important it is that we hold onto a childlike thirst for adventure. ”
Tom’s lyrical recollections are supported by the ebb and flow of Toby’s string parts along with Sarah’s dreamlike synth pads and harmonies. The nostalgic reverie of the track is comparable to artists like Noah Gundersen and Phoebe Bridgers.
in earnest’s previous two singles and DIY music videos have attracted international indie press as they build-up to the release of their self-titled EP on 7th October 2020.
