Track of the Day: Heroes In Hiding premiere new single 'I Live For You'

Dublin based folk-rock band have done it again with their hook-heavy new single 'I Live For You'.

Taking a sceptical view of the modern generation's obsession with social media, but retaining their trademark rousing sound, 'I Live For You' is the first single from the band's debut full-length album ACTOR.

Speaking about ‘I Live For You’, Heroes in Hiding say: “It’s a love song addressed to the narrator’s online version of themself. It examines the phenomenon of social media, and questions the authenticity of a person's online persona as opposed to their day to day selves. Sonically it uses synthesizers to evoke the false nature of social media and samples camera noises to give the listener a sense of its narcissistic core. Influence was taken from the works of Arcade Fire, Talking Heads and David Bowie”.

ACTOR will be out on May 25. The band will also play a string of live dates this summer (see below for full details).
