The genre-defying Passive Fix return with their new single 'I'll Take It All' which follows up the band's acclaimed previous release, 'Red Lights'.
'I'll Take It All' sees the midlands-based band explore their creativity further as the track features on the soundtrack to their upcoming short film, 'A Divine Descent' which is released on June the 23rd and continues the story behind 'I'll Take It All'.
'I'll Take It All' was recorded at The Royal Birmingham Conservatoire and the song was produced, mixed and mastered by themselves. Dealing with the cycle of grief, it was written by songwriter, vocalist and saxophonist Alex McCarthy who took the song to the rest of the band who then developed the final structure of the track and added further production elements.
On 'I'll Take It All, Alex said: "..the protagonist is experiencing loss and as a result he wants to escape into the wilderness..he starts to question his faith and blames others for his loss, pushing them away. The song's change in tone represents the protagonist's journey through the cycles of grief."
Passive Fix are the previously mentioned Alex McCarthy (vocals and saxophone), Alex Collett-Sinfield (guitar and saxophone), David Kirkham (drums) and Sam Stringer (bass guitar and backing vocals). They have been making waves on the live scene with several well attended headline shows under their belts and successful support slots, including a show at Birmingham's 02 Academy.
The band strives to blur genres and this new single is no different. With a growing fanbase which is demonstrated by their thousands of streams on Spotify, popular Youtube shorts and a regular vlog named 'Passive Vlogs', Passive Fix really have created their own music universe that fans are encouraged to engage with. This is reflected in their live shows which are high octane, unpredictable and thrilling. On stage the band uses a variety of technology and instruments which sets them apart from their contemporaries.
Passive Fix have been described as "a brilliant rising talent", a "stand out" band who "redefine genres and bring something new to the table", creating their "own musical universe". They have been featured on national and international radio stations and podcasts including Amazing Radio, Hive Radio, BBC Introducing in the West Midlands, East Midlands and Northamptonshire.
