Mitch Davis, Canadian songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist is today sharing his debut single “Bear The Cold”. The track is taken from his upcoming debut 7” of the same name and will be released on March 12th via Arbutus Records.
“Bear The Cold” encapsulates that feeling when a relationship is about to end. How it’s better to rip off the bandaid and move on, rather than stay in a potentially toxic environment. It offers a glimmer of hope in that you never truly leave each other, because part of that person has now become part of you.
Davis explains “I had the bass line for this one written and it was just floating around in my head for probably 5 years, so it was a huge relief to finally give it some life. Despite the bouncy groove, the song is about navigating uncertainty in a relationship showing signs of collapse and the processing/attempts to shed unwanted memories after the fact. Maybe everyone knows when it’s better to rip off the band-aid than ride the ups and downs of oscillating emotions, but it’s hard advice to follow. I also just feel incapable of forgetting some elements of the past, so it’s about trying to come to terms with carrying that whether you want to or not.”
