Track: Sturt Avenue release the hauntingly beautiful track ‘How Much It Costs’.

Indie folk band Sturt Avenue today release their single ‘How Much It Costs’: a paean to the struggles of pursuing an artistic life and gaining fulfilment from life. Created in collaboration with keyboard player Dave, who fronts his own band Bromham, the song travels effortlessly on a piano foundation skipping across the surface of gentle acoustic guitars with poignant yearning vocals.

The track has a statuesque grace and beauty, sending shivers down your spine with its haunting refrain. There are elements of The National in the delivery with an intensity that burns slowly like a fuse.

Frontman Bryn Soden provides further insight into the song’s conception:

The song is about the apathy that lets you fall into the grooves of an ordinary life rather than pursuing the dream you had for yourself when you were still idealistic. Originally crafted for my sister’s documentary ‘It Comes In Waves’, the song evolved during the creative process.

It is a song that positively shimmers like stars in the firmament:

‘How Much It Costs’ is out today and available to download and stream through all the usual places and here.
