the new SINGLE: Born Free 

RELEASE DATE: 5th February 2021

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Blossoming out of the grey industrial outskirts of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne and from the embers of defunct outfits on the north east music scene, Ten Eighty Trees offer a heavy yet vibrant blend of Rock, only indulging in subtilties to emphasise an ensuing aural intensity. Since launching onto the scene 2 years ago the band have earned a reputation for their infectious alternative rock anthems and enthralling live shows, the latter of which the band are feverously keen to get back to. 

 

The band have performed alongside the likes of We Are Scientists, King No-One, AllUsInLove and The Virginmarys, featuring on the line ups of Newcastle’s Hit The North Festival as well as playing over Sheffield’s Tramlines weekend. 6 Music’s Tom Robinson has also proved to be a fan of Ten Eighty Tree’s rock maximalism having dropped previous singles Casual Habits and Something in the Blood during his BBC Introducing Mixtape shows on the station. 

 

FFO: Biffy Clyro, Foo Fighters, Foals

About The Track

Born free is a no nonsense shot of taught rock riffery to the senses. I’ve always been fascinated by the art of writing a song that says everything it needs to say without pausing for a breathe or wasting a second. Songs like Tame by The Pixies or Sliver by Nirvana come to mind. I wanted this track to follow in the same vein, being an unforgettable speeding bullet of a song. Concise yet catchy. 

 

Raging against the ideas of fate and the circumstances you are born into forms the main focus of the lyrics, offering up the conflicting thoughts of someone feeling trapped in their seemingly ordinary life. Feelings of dissatisfaction are prominent throughout but are juxtaposed by suggestions of potential and possibilities waiting to be realised. 

Lyrics

Raise the dead, and tell them what they’ve missed, 

Twenty years still on my bucket list,

Hope you’re proud,

Sing it loud,

Hope you’re proud,

Of all I’ve yet become,

 

Yeah, there’s a plan laid out for me,

We were never born free,

There’s a plan laid out for me,

We were never born …

 

Born into these oily overalls, 

I’m begging for your uterus walls,

Hope you’re proud,

Sing it loud,

Hope you’re proud,

Of all I’ve yet become,

 

Yeah, there’s a plan laid out for me,

We were never born free,

There’s a plan laid out for me,

We were never born …

Free,

Free,

Yeah, there’s a plan laid out for me,

We were never born …
