Cove reveal ‘A Conscious Motion’ track by track

Cove have put together a track by track feature which dissects their forthcoming EP ‘A Conscious Motion’.

Coincide:Collide”: “This was the last track to be written for the EP. The song went through multiple variations before we “Frankensteined” it into what it is now. Experimenting with a few different structures before we settled on the final version of the song. After talking through lyrical ideas we knew we wanted to do something different to what we had done before, in terms lyrical inspiration and also the delivery and style of the vocals […]”

Solis”: “Solis” is definitely a song that is very special to us. It was the first song that featured Ben on vocals and was a turning point for the band. We had written “Solis” and “All I Believe” around the same time with a group of other songs. But these two were the strongest and made the cut. We knew we wanted to take what we had done on our last EP and amplify it, make it sound bigger and write more chorus-based songs as opposed to 4 minutes of riffs and screaming […]”

All I Believe”: “All I Believe” is a song about self-reflection. It’s about being able to look at the good and the dark parts of yourself, recognise them and accept them. The song was written at the same time as “Solis”. It is probably the softest song we have in our catalogue so far, but still packs a punch. We had demoed the song before, but slightly changed it instrumentally when it came to recording the real thing. The only thing that didn’t change was the lyrics […]”

Host”: We’ve always been a fan of interludes/intros into tracks on records. We wanted to write something that breaks up the EP and can also be used in the set. On “A Conscious Motion” it’s the first time we’ve used more than one tuning. So having “Host” to be able to be played live whilst we change tunings makes our live show a lot more seamless […]”

Reflect:Resolve”: “Reflect:Resolve” is our most collaborative effort to date. The song has parts written by everyone in the band and draws lyrical influence from every member. The main riff had been written for a while but once we had taken it to the rehearsal room, guitarist Ben Brazier came up with the end section. We’re all fans of different styles of music, in particular post-rock, which definitely has a strong influence on the end of this track […]
