Watch NewDad share new track ‘Ladybird’

Lifted from their forthcoming new EP.

With a brand new EP coming early next year, NewDad are giving us the latest taste of what to expect, sharing new track ‘Ladybird’.

“I wrote the song after watching the film ‘Ladybird’, the chord progression reminded me of the Dave Matthew’s song that’s played throughout the film so I initially named it after that, so ‘Ladybird’ was just a working title,” the band’s Julie Dawson explains. “I then wrote the lyrics about the difficult part of relationships and the struggle we sometimes face when we’re away from someone and the fears and anxieties we have about what they’re doing or if they’re okay, I realised this coincided with the relationship between the mother and daughter in the film so the title ended up being pretty fitting. It’s about the give and take in any relationship really and about the struggles of being away from someone you care about.”
