|Ever since the public reveal in February 2017 of Resolve’s debut single ‘Exposed‘, the Lyon, France based quartet has been eager to show their peer that they won’t settle for anything but greatness. Their strong work ethic and attention to details allowed them to open shows for Architects, Every Time I Die, While She Sleeps to name a few, all of that within the first few months of the band’s stammering career.
The four boys spent the rest of their first year as a band touring their home country as well as Europe and the UK, and unveiled music videos one after the other, fulfilling their initial plan of releasing a fully watchable record.
Summer of 2018 saw the release of another EP, Stripped Down Session, offering a different take on some of the songs from ‘Reverie‘, as well as their own interpretation of the classic Foo Fighters song ‘Best of You’. But this little acoustic venture was just a prelude to the imminent release of Resolve’s new lead single, the melody-driven ‘Carmela‘, a testimony to the band’s everlasting drive to push further their creative horizon.
This new track is called ‘Carmela’ and was written after the passing of our vocalist’s grandmother, Carmela Diliberto. More than a mourning song, the whole theme for it was the impact someone can have on your life, the ‘passing of the torch’ and the fear of yourself not leaving any lasting trace on your loved ones life.
‘When I’m gone, will someone miss me as much as I miss you?’
This is without a doubt the hardest we’ve ever worked on a single song, trying new things and aiming for different horizons, as well as doing everything ourselves, from the mixing to the video-making.
