UKs When They Riot Embrace Hope Amidst Uncertainty: Reviving the Essence of ‘Something To Live For’ in Latest Record with SODEH Records.
“Something To Live For” originated in 2016, during the initial stages of our band’s formation. Bobby had recently joined on bass, and we were actively seeking another guitarist to complete the lineup, forming what we now know as WTR.
The essence of the song captures a universal feeling – a concern for the future. It reflects a sense of aimlessness, as if there’s nothing left to pursue, but also a glimmer of hope that one can find something meaningful to make life worthwhile.
At the time of writing, Tom was facing a profound struggle in determining his life’s path. This existential moment led to a pivotal decision – he committed to the band wholeheartedly, making music his primary pursuit. “Something To Live For” was among the first demos we collaborated on during this transformative period.
Since its original release on our self-titled EP in 2019, the song has become an integral part of our live performances. As we progressed with recording our new record, we collectively agreed that the track deserved to be revisited. We felt compelled to re-record and re-mix it, aiming to unleash its full potential and capture its essence even more powerfully.
