With an ethereal, reflective and piano-led introduction, the latest single from Space4Lease, "If It's True" once again showcases the band's talent and ability to convey pure emotion into musical and lyrical form. The soft piano opening quickly rises into an emotional roar; reflecting on love, honesty and loss. "If It's True" premiered Tuesday on Impose Magazine, who described it as a "heartfelt ballad" with flawless vocals.
Vocalist Grayson Hamm reflected on the inspiration and message behind the single. "Trials and tribulations… love gained and love lost are things that everyone can relate to or sympathize with in one way, shape, or form. Regardless of individual circumstances there is still something people inherently share emotionally in the most general of senses - we all love, and if you do love, chances are, at some point, you are going to lose that love. [If It's True] is simply about the mistiming of love and how it affects us. Even though the feelings might be there for one another, there might be circumstances outside of our control that pull us apart. Timing can be extremely important, and in most cases, timing can be everything."
The band noted their thanks for support from friends and mentors in shaping their musical progression throughout the project, including Bryce Zabric (The Music Group OKC) and Mitch Bell (ZHU & ACM administrator). "Mitch helped shape parts, pull counter melodies and tweak new ideas out of each us, in performance and in the mixes," said guitarist Walt Blythe. "A big part of 'If It’s True' came from running a few different guitars on the building bridge solo section. Nothing quite struck the needed emotion...Mitch pulled out a 1920’s Gibson electric hollow body, a true gem in this world. We ran it through an old OctoFuzz, stacked a few drives on top, added a slight delay and completely took the bridge and outro to new heights! I was fortunate to dive into his guitar and gear collection, having options for each song."
"If It's True" comes as the fourth single from Space4Lease in a series of recent releases, that will culminate in a new EP this fall. Purchase the single on Bandcamp, iTunes and all major digital platforms now, and stay tuned for upcoming tour dates.
