NewDad have released a new track called ‘Ladybird’, their first piece of new music since the Waves EP. The track, out now via Fair Youth Records, was produced by John Congleton. Take a listen below.
“I wrote the song after watching the film ‘Ladybird’, the chord progression reminded me of the Dave Matthew’s song that’s played throughout the film so I initially named it after that, so ‘Ladybird’ was just a working title,” the group’s Julie Dawson explained in a statement. “I then wrote the lyrics about the difficult part of relationships and the struggle we sometimes face when we’re away from someone and the fears and anxieties we have about what they’re doing or if they’re okay, I realised this coincided with the relationship between the mother and daughter in the film so the title ended up being pretty fitting. It’s about the give and take in any relationship really and about the struggles of being away from someone you care about.”
