Hampshire native rockers Kings And Castles are proud to announce the release of their latest single ‘Bevvy’. The track is an infectious three minutes of punchy bouncing riffs, yet has a much more sincere meaning than the title would suggest.
Bevvy was written by vocalist Ross Rolph, he explains the background to the track:
“The song lyrics were written about a tough couple of years that I went through.
It’s about becoming depressed, seeking help, trying medication and feeling like you are on a downward spiral with no way out. Having to battle with hyper emotions, being top of the world one minute to empty the next but using music to overcome these darkest of times.
People still shunned for talking about mental health and the struggles they go through and that’s not right. Hopefully people will find the strength to not care about the negative opinions people attach to it and find the strength to speak out and seek support.”.
