It’s a delicate song about remembering the good days in the wake of pain and suffering.
South Australian indie folk band Sturt Avenue have just lifted the lid on their new single, ‘Over Everything’. The world is a fickle place at the moment but to Sturt Avenue, everything’s going to be ok.
The song absorbs all the madness today’s world brings and converts it into a serene landscape of positivity.
“Let the good times roll/Until the fire’s burning low/May it’s light shine on/Long after the years take their toll,” lead vocalist Bryn Soden sings with his dreamlike falsetto.
It’s everything we need to hear right now, at a time where the world seems as if it’s hit rock bottom. The SCALA award-winning Soden is joined by a troupe of family and friends to make up Sturt Avenue. His father John provides harmonies to the track, as well as lap steel and lead guitar. His sister Tarn provides backing vocals, while Soden’s friends, Bryce Lehmann, Isaac Kerr and Dave Thompson provide drums, bass and keys to the song.
To accompany the release, the band worked on a video with photographer and videographer Alexander Robertson. Set in the countryside, the clip features each of the band’s six members and explores the spaces in which the song was born; it’s the togetherness and unity of Sturt Avenue that makes them so endearing.
