Sheppard is back with another amazing song in the form of ‘Somebody Like You.’
George Sheppard opens up about heartbreak with this track, which explores breaking the endless cycle of comfort dating. This follows the recently released track ‘Don’t Believe In Love,’ which as a band acted as an anti-love song, and was released post-Valentines day.
Speaking more on the new track George says:
“Somebody Like You” is actually the first song we wrote for this year long project. It was written last year in Brisbane, about a time in my early 20’s when I lost the girl I thought was the love of my life. I’ve never been that heartbroken. She was the best thing that had ever happened to me at the time, and over the course of the next year I realised I wasn’t actually moving on and trying to look for someone new, I was looking for someone who was exactly like her.
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting a different outcome. But, we all love what’s comfortable to us, even if we know deep down that it’s not what’s actually best for us. We look for the same person in a different city, town or country hoping for a different story. For too long I was convincing myself that ‘this time it would be different’ but it never was. It’s a cycle that’s really easy to slip into and something we’re all guilty of at some point. This new single is about that feeling and that period of my life, which I’m happy to be done with.
George Sheppard discusses ‘Somebody Like You’
The song flows beautifully, with impeccable harmonies that truly encapsulate the emotions going into lyrics of the song. The words portray a frame of mind some of us find ourselves in while exploring the complexities of being in a relationship and needing to let someone go.
This track is part of an ongoing project from the Aussie band who will be releasing a new track monthly, over the next 12 months before it completes itself in the form of their album! Pretty cool, huh?!
