"It's a call to arms," say the relatively new Dublin band.
The Dublin band Forty Foot has a brand new single out tomorrow that Hot Press is proud to premiere.
'IDNA' is the first track of the year from Mark Dillon (guitar), Sam Coffey (guitar/vocals) and Ezra Mullen (drums).
The grunge influenced trio say that the new song is about Irish togetherness and strength in adversity.
"The lyrics only came together really when we hit the studio," explains Coffey.
"I don't think I had the chorus written at all actually. For me, it's a call to arms. Ireland's been through a tough time with COVID and with an unaccountable government that is just ticking boxes. It's been rough for many. Despite this, there is an inherent pride and togetherness we all share, it is in our DNA. All the mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, friends, lovers, had to keep each other going. I think I was just tapping into that feeling, it was certainly how I felt and how I still feel."
