Luke Burgess is set to release his latest single “Back & Forth” on all major platforms on 26 June 2020.
In the midst of all this darkness and negativity in the world at present “Back & Forth” is set to ignite the feeling of Summer, Positivity and togetherness. Pulling inspiration from Garage culture, pop melodies and modern songwriting, Back & Forth is the inclusive pop song that people need.
“This is a song about a love that you keep going back to, realising it’s not good for you and then repeating the process later down the line. Whether that person has substance dependence, the tendency to lie or manipulate truth or just not in the right headspace in order to be happy on their own before trying to be in a relationship. The ability to say sorry over and over again and not really mean it played a big part in the idea for the song. I feel like there are many people that do this, and although it’s obvious to see and we know we’re going to be in exactly the same position, we can’t seem to walk away from it.
The chorus explains that no matter how much that someone thinks they have fallen, that when they stand up they are still as beautiful to me as before. It’s an eternal struggle between the connection and passion that you feel when you’re together, but also how to make it work between two opposing forces.”
CREATING BACK AND FORTH
The story behind the creation of the track has a very interesting story indeed. Back in winter 2018 Luke met producer Jamie Smith for a demo session to work out tracks for an EP. Back and Forth was the first track that they settled on producing and started straight away.
To say the creation process was seamless would be an understatement. Within a few hours the foundations of the song were created and locked in, a few mix sessions later and a base mix was finished. Back and forth from that day was never planned for release, it was an experiment for Luke and Jamie to find a vibe to work towards.
In the winter of 2019 it would seem as this single would never be released when Jamie’s laptop and back up hard drives were stolen whilst on tour. Back and forth and many other creations were no more. 6 months later in the heat of the Covid-19 Lockdown an email was found in a sent box with the only surviving copy of Back & Forth!
It seemed only right to give this song the release it deserved after hiding all this time!
SAVE THE DATE - RELEASE of 'Back And Forth' on 26 June 2020!!
