After racking up more over 500,000 streams on last single 'In My Element', Birmingham alt-rockers The Clause return with 'Time Of Our Lives', an indie anthem to the year of 2020 that saw us all lead lives like never before, and the anticipation of breaking free from the viral chains which bind us all to our homes.
Frontman Pearce Macca used his lockdown time locked in the shed at the bottom of his garden, coming up with tune after tune, of which the boppy, energetic 'Time Of Our Lives' was one.
“It came almost instantaneously," he says now. "I wrote the chorus at about 1am on a Saturday night during lockdown, by 3am the whole song was complete. It was one of those songs where everything clicks perfectly. This particular tune came very naturally, I think because I didn’t have to try and come up with any lyrics for it, I just wrote exactly what I was thinking at the time.
"It’s obviously been a tough year for everyone and in the current climate it’s quite easy to fall into the trap of writing unhappy songs or songs that focus on the bad in the world rather than the good. This song was almost like sticking two fingers up to all the hardships suffered and realising life is a blessing."
Have the time of your life with a listen.
