Sydney based artist Lover (real names Oliver Kirby) drops his official debut single titled “Eagle To The Prey” via Mammal Sounds Records. The smooth vocalist delivers a solid performance with his heartfelt lyrics over a soulful backdrop laced with hip-hop rhythms. For this record, he teamed up with his producer friends Oh Boy & Tanssi, who all assisted in making the song come to life. To really make the song more engaging, he taps into his own experiences to tell a story of pain and loss as a result of the end of a relationship.
“Lyrically it explores the loss you feel at the end of a relationship and through that hurt you often turn to forms of escapism (drugs, alcohol) instead of facing the reality of the situation.
The metaphor and title of “Eagle To The Prey”, for me at least, captures that feeling of resigning to your fate.” – LOVER
