New Zealand singer-songwriter ANTONY JEFFARES delivers glistening 70s grooves on his new single We Carry On, out today on all platforms. Finding his sweet spot somewhere between Peter Gabriel, Carole King and The Human League, his sound is heavily influenced by the Laurel Canyon scene of the 70s and new wave pop of the 80s.
We Carry On was co-written by Mark Perkins (Merk) and mixed by Shannon Fowler (Shannon Matthew Vanya, Tom Lark). “I’d been stuck on this song, and so brought in my good friend Merk to help rework the chorus, and we got it feeling right. I was really channeling Dr Hook on the production, and even managed to sneak a flute solo in there. The song is a simple ode to getting through the tough moments,” says Jeffares.
