Inspired by Winston Churchill’s quote “If you’re going through hell, keep going”, Ride is about empowerment, love and the natural world. Commentary on Greek mythology about the gods being so scared of humans that they split our souls between two people to weaken us. The point of life then is to search to find the other half of your soul.

Written with a view to holding a bit of a mirror up to songs of our album Any Old Love, and tells a similar story to the songs of that album, albeit through slightly different eyes. Like seeing the reflection of something in water, the song lives in the same world but musically and lyrically is a little bit inverted.

“Melbourne's north anbd south is divided by the Yarra, creating a sense of physical and cultural separation.
Each side of the city has distinct qualities which both reflect and help to shape the people that inhabit them. The Yarra is what exists in between, equally separating and uniting the two.

The Solicitors - Quicksand     Pop, Rock 23/09/2013
Made up of laconic guitars, off-kilter arrangements, jumbo hooks and sagacious lyrics, The Solicitors sound is akin to great bastions of the New-Wave scene from yesteryear.
this driving 3 minute pop-rock opus laments over a friend-in-need past the point of no return. The track embodies everything you come to expect from this band - big dumb hooks, clever arrangements, blunt lyrics and a sharp wardrobe.
