As if reading our minds, Aussie alt-rockers The Rubens examine the future and what’s to come on their new single ‘Time Of My Life’.
Following their recent success with singles ‘Heavy Weather’ and ‘Live In Life’, the band take a different route with this new track and gear it towards those who are feeling pretty hopeless right now (so, everyone?)
Kicking off with a blurred piano melody, lead singer Sam Margin invites you to join his inner thoughts as he sings about anxiety, wanting something more and questioning the meaning of, well, everything. But the twist here is, once the chorus hits, there is a sense of hope and determination to push through and embrace the inevitable.
As the band shares, “We wrote this track in a much simpler time, yet the hopefulness of this song feels so relevant and important to right now. Our inbox has been flooded by young people (particularly those about to graduate year 12) feeling really confused and apprehensive about the future, when this should be the time of their lives – so we hope this song helps those people feel heard, supported and inspired knowing there’s still so much to come and to look forward to.”
You really have to feel for Year 12 students right now. But if there is anything to take away from this track it’s that there’s no use in fretting over things you can’t control. So why not take things in stride and embrace what’s to come?
The Rubens were set to tour this year but have been forced to postpone twice due to COVID-19. But, the band have rescheduled and aim to perform the ‘Live In Life’ tour all across Australia from April 2021.
