Picture The Scene (led by Lewis Speirs) offers the third single ‘Ceasefire’. A followup to breakout singles ‘Get Out’ and ‘DIY’, ‘Ceasefire’ marks a sonic change for project. It shows the project is capable of trading out his signature rock style for a driving and hooky slice of indie pop.
Speirs said: “When starting this project, it was so important to me that I would not be pinned into one category! All of my favourite artists have such a diverse collection of sounds and that’s what makes them unique and great and so why not do the same by taking a new direction with ‘Ceasefire’? To me, ‘Ceasefire’ is a love letter to somebody I’m incredibly close to, to let them know that I’m sorry I wasn’t there and that if they ever need me, I’m only a call away, in a way dealing with my guilt and moving forward to help rebuild that relationship. I think that comes across in the song both sonically and lyrically to create this really uplifting feel in the track, almost like a release of energy that’s been pent up for quite a while before writing the song!”
‘Ceasefire’ is part of the upcoming debut EP out in October.
