“All our latest songs are inspired by midlife crisis: This one is about divorce,” explains Nathan Waywell.
As with the previous four singles, Eat, Drink & Remarry is holistic: a democratically written and recorded song, playful yet true to life.
Amersham (made up of Adam Lomas, Sasha Sonnbichler, Tim Trotter and Waywell) is pushing boundaries and challenging convention with each new track they drop, and Eat, Drink & Remarry now sits atop a growing mount of cheeky adrenaline-fueled fun.
The subsequent success of the new songs since 2020 has the band and longstanding fans feeling vindicated that there is still more great music to be made.
Free of restriction and exhilarated to be writing and recording together, Amersham’s new music invites listeners to be swept up and taken on a trip filled with excitement, possibility and cathartic liberation.
I chatted to Waywell last week…
Music means magic to me. It’s something that gives me faith in life itself. Some other animals make music - but not like us.
In Amersham it’s about our life experiences and working through questions, emotions, humour and groove. It has to groove.
