It all goes back to MySpace (for younger readers that was…. oh, never mind) – that’s where Bridge 19’s frontwomen Audrey Cecil and Amanda Lucas came across each other’s music – and soon started working as a duo. They’d actually know each other as kids, but had headed off to different colleges and unbeknownst to each other had taken up songwriting. As their sound grew they expanded from a duo to full band status, and thus Bridge 19 came into being. Bridge 19 has had some band members come an go over the years; the current lineup consists of Cecil on lead guitar and Lucas on rhythm guitar or handheld percussion, Joey Thieman (horns, accordion), Meg Samples (drums), Jeff Faith (bass) has been in place since 2014.
This new track is taken from their soon to be released third album ‘In the Afterglow‘, and from the opening harmonised lines there’s not really any secret about what the song’s main theme is “Darlin’ don’t go / lay down your head / ‘cos it’s way too cold / So get back in bed.”
