The pioneers in Sign Language accessibility in music are back and they show their class once again. Birmingham’s Chasing Deer are in tune with the needs of their community with their latest incredible indie-pop release and this one is called ‘Scared’.
Recorded in London, this special song has been created to help us all during this horrific and long-lasting pandemic that has taken many lives, scared most of us and has left many emotional wounds that might take generations to fully recover from.
Whilst some people have hidden away from it all, waiting for it all to be over, some brave musicians have decided to stand up and be counted. This is a fine example of how music can truly heal and help those sensitive souls out there that need a bit of help to make it through the next day.
The lyrics tell the story of a London haze and getting caught up in all the crazy times of present. The world is insane and scary but with the support of those new and old friends, it will all be okay.
His voice is so strong and the tone is a tremendous listen on our tired ears and souls. The mellow acoustic energy simmers up and warms us up like a campfire with marshmallows cooking and good humans close by.
This is the song to hold onto the ones who you love the most and who you want to spend the most time with. ‘Scared’ from Chasing Deer is a timeless song that deserves lots of love and to be on a many a movie soundtrack.
