Toronto, ON-based rock trio Mute Choir have announced their debut album, Silent Conversations due out February 28, 2020, via Sleepless Records. You can pre-order the album HERE.
In advance of the album release, they have unveiled a brand new single, “Shadowboxing”. “Shadowboxing” is about letting the weight of fear and negativity break one’s spirit over time. The character has given up and distanced themselves from their passions, realizing a little too late how misguided they were. The verses muse over the unfulfilled mundanity of their day-to-day, while the choruses offer a bleak retrospect. Producer and songwriter Sam Arion was inspired by a point in life where he was starting anew and feeling the tremendous pressure of uncertainty.
“The character was written as a reminder to myself. I would rather fail doing what I love than know I never tried. When the future is wide open, it can be easy to overthink your present decisions in the face of who you might become. You can never know for sure if life will turn out the way you hope; in following your gut instinct there is always a possibility for failure, and fear of it can be overwhelming enough to drive you to the wrong kinds of compromises.”
