British modern hard rock band THOSE DAMN CROWS have released their new single "Blink of an Eye", taken from from their upcoming debut album 'Murder and the Motive', which is due to be released worldwide on October 5th.
"From the early demo stages of 'Blink' we knew this song had the potential to become one of the biggest songs on the record," comments THOSE DAMN CROWS frontman Shane Greenhall. "It seemed to have all the ingredients of a potential hit - a story, a message, a great hook and a HUGE chorus that the crowds at our live shows love to sing back at us."
Speaking about the meaning behind the song, Shane adds: "'Blink' is about a time and place where we grew up as kids, and reflecting on how much has changed since our childhood... pubs, venues, shops, all boarded up; how we once were, how life was and just how precious life and loved ones are. It's only through loss do you truly appreciate life... 'You gotta hit the lows to feel the highs.'"
