New London outfit Gently Tender have shared their second single “Some Hard Advice” and its accompanying, self-directed video. It follows the release of last year’s debut single “2 Chords Good,” backed with b-side “Avez Vous Deja.” They’re currently working on a full-length album.

Formed out of the ashes of British buzz band Palma Violets, Gently Tender features three members of the former band—Sam Fryer, Pete Mayhew and Will Doyle—in addition to The Big Moon’s Celia Archer on keyboards and guitarist Adam Brown.

“Some Hard Advice” doesn’t simply pick up where Palma Violets left off. There’s an introspective, old soul to Gently Tender. Their incandescent harmonies, stirring keyboards and doomsday lyrics prove they’re not just interested in creating music with a plucky spirit and a silver screen sway—they’re wise beyond their years.

As Fryer explains, there’s a bleak spark behind this song: “I was reading the news last year and a story caught my attention of how the island of Hawaii went into crisis and panic when everyone received an accidental text message to say that a missile was heading in their direction and they should take cover. The song is about that moment of realization—the prospect of dying without your loved ones.”

This is our favourite song to date and we feel this track sums up what Gently Tender is all about. Another song will join in a few weeks , before we headline Oslo in London on March 6th.
