SONG PICK: in earnest – The Days in Between
“Reasons to Stay Alive” is the title of the new EP by U.K. trio in earnest. And while the main songwriters Sarah Holburn and Tom Eatherton have their own stories to tell, the reflections on this gap-less six-track record deeply resonate in a broader sense. Our Song Pick of the Day is the opening cut, “The Days in Between,” but the full magic unfolds when listening to the entire EP.
The band explains:
“The EP took its title from a book by Matt Haig, which originally inspired us to talk so openly about mental illness. We wrote these songs to document our personal highs and lows over the past couple of years; the whole record is cyclical to reflect how most of us have felt stuck in an endless loop.”
