Field Mouse - "In Blue"
taken from the upcoming record, Meaning
"In Blue" shows off Field Mouse's pop proclivities in a rolling dream-rock influenced number underpinned by warm, undulating synth, nostalgic chord progressions, and skittering tambourine. Led by Rachel Browne's distinct and direct singing style, "In Blue" invites us to focus our energy into that which brings us joy.
"This song is one of the most personal on the record, but it deals with bigger, more universal themes as well. It was essentially written for my sister Robin, with parts of it from her perspective and parts from mine. [Our last record] Episodic was largely written during and after her cancer diagnosis and treatment, but those songs dealt with my feelings and anxieties more than anything. Robin has been cancer free for three and a half years, and I wanted to really write a song for her, inviting her back into a place of calm in a world that can be beautiful. It recognizes the things that are out of our control but asks her (and all of us) to let go of the worry and focus on the things that bring us joy."
-Rachel Browne of Field Mouse on "In Blue"
