COUNTERFEIT. Share Empowering New Tune ‘It Gets Better’
When you feel like giving up, COUNTERFEIT. are here to remind you that you can make it through with their newest track It Gets Better.
British rock quintet COUNTERFEIT. are back with their first new material since their debut album, Together We Are Stronger, and it seems that our patience has paid off as the ripping It Gets Better is an absolute belter of a self-help tune. Channelling youthful energy and blistering instrumentals, it’s a great pick-me-up for anyone wondering where their life is headed at the moment. Opening with a motivational spoken word section, it’s refreshing to hear frontman Jamie Campbell Bower admit that he’s been through this shit and made it out, much like how you will.
Explaining more of the track, Jamie says:
‘It Gets Better’ is a deeply personal song and its message cuts right to the heart of who we are. Our goal is to bring people together, to dismantle the barriers that divide us as a species and to make a change in the world. We are in a time of need. We need to come together and to learn to love again. Learn to listen again. Learn to talk again. Learn to feel again. Learn to let go and let in. It’s a small start but if we try, I do believe that we can start to change things because I myself have learnt that with these small steps it does indeed get better.
