Award-winning Canadian alt-folk duo Fresh Breath are taking off and getting outta town with their newest country-inspired single, “Time For A Change.”
“At face value, it’s a song about wanting to break free from the stressful normalcy of small town living,” Katie Pascoe said. “It’s about heading out on an adventure with the one you love.
“Getting out of town,” Josh Pascoe added. “Together.”
But as most great songs do, this one has a personal backstory too.
“A friend of ours who lives in Calgary, Alberta was chatting with us about their upcoming western tour at the time,” Josh explained. “Knowing we’d be there during the Calgary Stampede, he encouraged us to learn and brush up on some country music.”
“So we decided to write our own!” Katie added. “We kept it honest, simple, and to the point.”
To boot, the pair had both experienced a weekend full of “small town drama” at the time, so they included it in the track. “As we were writing, Josh was sipping on whiskey, and it also happened to be a Tuesday…. That got worked into the very first line of the song, and it all fell into place from there.”
The Ontario-based husband-and-wife duo are fresh off their recent spring 2020 double-single release for “Tomorrow Today” and “Make It Together,,” both of which we were excited to feature here on Roots Music Canada.
