The journey toward Elbows' debut album 'Tales From The Old Mill' continues with the new single "Seasons," his first release on EveryDejaVu Records!
A prominent theme of 'Tales From The Old Mill' is the search for "home" as a connection to another person, a romantic partner. "Seasons" is the finale of that narrative, looking at a failed relationship from a place of distance and accepting that something was not meant to be, rather than lamenting its failure.
"Back in 2013 I returned to the Bay Area, finally at the end of an on-again-off-again relationship," Elbows says of the latest single. "We tried for a few years to be together, season after season, but it never stuck. When I started writing 'Seasons' I thought each verse would tell the story of a different time when the relationship withered, first in winter, then spring, then summer. But once things were done for good, and I got time and distance from our eventual end, I recognized that it was the same story repeating over and over again, much like the seasons themselves. In that way it ended up being a much simpler song, story-wise."
'Tales From The Old Mill' is due out this October on EveryDejaVu.
