Fresh Breath are taking off with their new country-inspired single Time For A Change — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
“At face value, it’s a song about wanting to break free from the stressful normalcy of small-town living,” Katie Pascoe says. “It’s about heading out on an adventure with the one you love.”
But like most great songs, there’s a personal backstory to Time For A Change. “It’s inspired by some personal events that happened to us,” Josh explains. “A friend of ours who lives in Calgary, Alberta, was chatting with us about their upcoming western tour at the time. Knowing we’d be there during the Calgary Stampede, he encouraged us to learn and brush up on some country music.” Adds Kelly: “So we decided to write our own! We kept it honest, simple, and to the point.”
To boot, the pair had both experienced a weekend full of ‘small-town drama’ at the time, so they included it in the track. “As we were writing, Josh was sipping on whiskey and it also happened to be a Tuesday,” says Katie. “That got worked into the very first line of the song, and it all fell into place from there.”
The Ontario-based husband and wife duo are fresh off their recent double-single release for Tomorrow Today and Make It Together. The tracks beamed brightly as positive perspective pieces amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
