The Wind Covenant said of the new EP and single release: “One of the most enjoyable aspects of being a band, for us, is engaging in creative and inspiring writing sessions together.

When we began the writing process for Hiraeth, our primary goal was to craft a collection of songs that felt uniquely exciting to us. With this EP, our focus was on creating a solemn, melancholic, and heart-wrenching vibe.

We aimed to blend elements from various genres reflecting our musical backgrounds, including melodic hardcore, black-gaze and classical music, while expanding on our metalcore and deathcore roots. The new songs place less emphasis on riffs – although they remain a significant part of our sound – instead, they serve more as a frame than a centrepiece.

Throughout the writing and production process, we deliberately prioritised the emotion behind the songs as our guiding compass. This intentional shift resulted in a more personal and unique outcome.

“Our new track, ‘The Straight And Narrow,’ delves into the unsettling sensation of not belonging, coupled with the disappointment of realising that a situation we once hoped would bring fulfilment ultimately falls short of our expectations. In these moments, there’s a yearning for the familiar and secure, a desire to retreat to a place of comfort. However, retreating to what’s safe, metaphorically speaking, offers only temporary relief from the discomfort.

It begs the question: Is going back to our safe place what’s right for us? Sometimes, we should maintain a determination to persevere despite the challenges. By adhering to the proverbial ‘straight and narrow’ path, we can strive to live our lives as authentically as possible, clinging to the hope that better days lie ahead. For us, this song encapsulates the idea of always moving forward, even when faced with adversity and uncertainty.

“This song is definitely one of the most heartfelt pieces on the EP. It carries a weighty emotional resonance that combines elements of hope, pain and melancholy. Both in its lyrics and musical composition, it captures the complexity and duality of emotions we all face during pivotal moments in our lives.

“Our main goal is to guide listeners through an emotive journey, inviting them to appreciate not only the genre essentials (impactful breakdowns and riffs), but also the deeply personal lyrics, unique sound elements, melodic intricacies and a solemn mood that transcends genres.

If you’re looking for a band that brings a different flavour to the scene, we encourage you to give us a listen.
