London-based alternative rock band KEO is making a strong statement with their new single ‘Fly,’ released today.

Produced by Brett Shaw, known for his work with Foals and Florence + The Machine, ‘Fly’ is an urgent and, at times, enraged blast of alternative rock. The track features vocalist Finn Keogh’s raspy delivery and astute reflections on trust and toxic relationships, patiently building toward a cathartic release of emotion in its final third.

‘Fly’ is rooted in a personal experience for Finn Keogh, who explains:

“‘Fly’ is about a relationship I was in as a teenager that continues to leave a bad taste in my mouth to this day. I wrote the song when I was still in the relationship at the age of 17, the lyrics “why can’t you leave this here” express my frustration with her making it difficult for me to leave, guilting me into staying. Some of the lyrics refer to trust using the analogy of it being our wings: ‘It takes a while to mend your old wing and just a second to learn how it breaks’. The song also references some of the toxic habits we had and how within this toxicity was a middle ground of regret and longing for one another. ‘Cry my name, I’ll call yours back’ – for example. Even though the relationship was at a point where it was too far gone – I still feel the consequences of it all.”

‘Fly’ is out now.
