The alt-country duo has a new tune for you to love.
Two Ways Home have been working hard developing their sound and crafting new songs. And now Isi and Lewis have revealed their latest single As I Leave. Written in Nashville with local country duo The Young Fables, who have become close friends of the pair, the song showcases a slightly different side of Two Ways Home.
Lewis swaps his signature acoustic guitar for the Electric and shows off his skill with a stunning guitar solo accompanied by whistle-tone harmony from Isabella, introducing a new facet of her voice that has not been used in any of their previous songs.
Isabella describes, “As I Leave is very close to my heart. It’s the feeling when you have fallen out of love with someone and you know it will break that person if you end it but at the same time it is going to hurt you just as much if not more, knowing that you have caused someone who you care deeply about so much sorrow.”
Lewis adds “I remember being in our Nashville hotel room, sitting around a table with Wes and Laurel (The Young Fables). We each played a couple of songs for each other and suddenly Isabella came up with the line: ‘standing here beside you looking in, I don’t know what to say or how to begin’. We knew straight away this one was going to be special. It wasn’t going to be a straightforward break up song, we were looking to explore a different avenue and ended up writing from the perspective of someone who had fallen out of love but who was still very attached to the person that they were going to break up with. It was brilliant working with Wes and Laurel, especially as Wes has a very Jazz led background, which is heavily reflected in the chord moves throughout the song and we are looking forward to seeing them again when we are in Nashville at the end of this month.”
