Cambridge alt-rockers Standing Like Statues have released a video for “Confidence”, taken from their recently released sophomore EP, Reality Checkpoint. “Confidence” has already been added to Spotify’s “New Punk Tracks” and “The Scene” playlists and follows the band’s highly praised single “Stupid Love”, which received support from Kerrang! Radio’s Johnny Doom and BBC Music Introducing in Cambridgeshire. We’re just chuffed to see them do so well after they tread the boards (barefoot) on our Wildfire stage a few years back!
The band comment on the new single:
If you’ve ever felt like giving up, this song is for you. It’s about hitting that point of defeat and being filled with self-doubt, then managing to stumble your way through it alive. Learning all the while just how important self-care and love is and how you should never take anything for granted. When you stop apologising for being yourself, things become so much easier!
Standing Like Statues worked with renowned producer Romesh Dodangoda on the new EP (which you can stream/purchase here), which has forced the band to dig deep and harness the power to commit themselves to authenticity; rising above the blur of memes, trends, concepts and false personas which dominate modern life. Having learned to laugh in the face of adversity, there are no barriers to fight through and lots of love to give.
