Vancouver-based duo Focus Your Audio is back with their brand new single “Over There”, which you can stream exclusively via Aesthetic Magazine below.
“Over There” is a song about the ones we love when caught in the storms of life,” says the duo. “We wonder how did we get here? How are you over there when I’m over here? How do we navigate this? Making a conscientious decision to agree to disagree so that we don’t ruin ourselves as we weather those storms. Letting the foundation of love win every time.”
Their new roots-infused, americana track was produced by Canadian music powerhouses Mike Young (bassist – Mother Mother), and engineered by Karl Dicaire (Mother Mother, Iskwe, Big Wreck).
Comprised of Sarah McArthur and Bobby McAloney, Focus Your Audio is a duo that focuses heavily on the integrity of a song. Often compared to Fleetwood Mac and Lady A, the two musicians have an Americana/Roots/alt-country sound that is hard to define but easy to listen to. Legendary Canadian artist Ron Sexsmith commended their brand new track and commented on the song’s “imagined production and nice contemporary vibe”.
“Over There” is a song about a disagreement – a truthful peek into the lives of the couple who make music together. A vulnerable, honest, call out to a partner, Focus Your Audio both lyrically and sonically takes the listener through the unsaid aspects of a disagreement with music that matches the emotion of the song. The anthemic chorus, Sarah’s undeniable vocal and lyrical talent and Bobby’s musicianship all tie harmoniously together. As a quest to figure out how they got into the position they’re in and what they can do about it, the tune will resonate with all listeners who have ever had an argument and wondered why they got there and how they can fix it.
