Talking about the track, vocalist and guitarist Daniel O’Kelly commented in a press release:
For most of the pandemic I lived with my sister who is a healthcare worker and was working in the designated Covid hospital in St James’ Dublin. Unfortunately, I was far less heroic, writing copy for a car insurance company.
This song is about feeling embarrassed about how different our lives were at this time. When it comes to telling my grandchildren what all this was like, I’ll be telling them about my sisters who have more important stories to share.
Archive Material, Silverbacks’ second album following their 2020 debut Fad, is set to land on January 21 via Full Time Hobby. So far, the band have previewed it with the title track’, ‘Wear My Medals’, and ‘Rolodex City’.
