Stolen City has released their new video for the single titled ‘The Tower’ today. The music really reflects the video for the song and the meaning, which is hope and unity. Unity in the fact that there is always someone that will be there for you when you need it. You just have to find them. Hope in that there is hope for us all in those dark times when we feel alone and, when you are alone, you really aren’t because there is that someone out there. You also have yourself and don’t yourself short.
The music gives that uplifting feeling that really enforces the lyrical meaning, which gives it an almost cinematic flair to it which adds to the power of both the song and the video. Bravo!
About Stolen City
Comprising of lead singer Sean McGrath, guitarist David McCabe, and drummer Ian Bailey, Stolen City pride themselves on their fun and energetic live performances. This release comes off the back of a whirlwind 2019 that not only saw the band sell out 3 nights at Academy 2, Drop Dead Twice and upstairs in Whelans, but also saw lead singer Sean, at the end of his birthday night out, share the stage with Lewis Capaldi in The Olympia to sing the scot’s hit Bruises together!
The new single (The Tower) was written as a letter by lead singer Sean to his girlfriend Amy to explain that no matter what she has, or will go through in life, that he will be there to help her through it. With addiction & violence occurring in the home when she was a child, it has had a knock-on effect in her later life leading to PTSD and depression. Sean wrote the song to show Amy that he would help her through anything that she came up against in her life, whether it was something in her past, present or future. Stolen City hopes that this song shows people that no matter what’s going on in their lives or the lives of others close to them that there is always a reason to carry on and someone there to help you through those hard times.
