Singled Out: SIR's So Cold


The Denver based indie pop trio SIR recently released their latest single "So Cold" and to celebrate we asked them to share the story behind the track with our readers. Here is the story:

We usually write all of our music together, but this song was particularly unifying. During recording, and right before a tour, we lost a band member who quit on his own accord. Band relationships can be disastrous and this one was no different. "Fueling fire, and woke up in a flood." We lost recordings, equipment, and a friend. This made us question almost everything: are we playing the style of music that we want to play? Are our songs good enough? Should we start over? One thing we never questioned though was our commitment to the band and to each other. It launched us into a writing frenzy, abandoning all of the songs we were previously playing. This is how "So Cold" was born, just days before we left on tour.

Once you are out of an oppressing relationship you can see more clearly. The pre chorus lyric echo that emotion: "So let me go, My grip won't hold, This dead end road we've always known. So let me go and set me free with angel eyes you devil". Lyrics in the second verse refer to Sarah actually losing her voice for a month. The bridge is crystal clear. "You come, you go, we never know, the choice was always yours. God forbid I argue with the righteous self absorbed. You walk away, take everything, and now it's blowing up. Instead of fast we're going far- the truth speaks loud enough."

Super random facts:

We wrote this song in Sarah's apartment. She's moved two times since then.

We recorded this song in LA, where we got to live for a few months.

Luke played drums with a broken wrist that was not quite healed yet.

The music video will be released soon and stars an amazing French actress.

The original title was Hate and Darkness. We decided to change that because it made us sound so dark. I guess we are kind of dark after all. We wrote a song about someone who was an ass and put it out for the world to hear.

The band (including previous bandmate) all have tattoo's that say "If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together". It still rings true!

Now that you know the gory details, you can listen to that song here, or find us on our Facebook right here!
