Away From Us by Cultures

Manchester’s Cultures have this beat that plays eloquently with the listener. It’s tight, and really interestingly intertwined with the track. Vocally the band is killing it. It’s brooding, a bit melancholy, and poetically written. The band plays so well off each other, with perfectly balanced dynamics and really honest in the production. This track comes out sounding live, and no doubt, the band has seriously been killing it around Manchester’s most prolific live venues.

‘Away from Us’ is about the feeling you get when you leave home for the first time and find your feet in the world. I wrote the lyrics when I first lived away from Manchester about the people in my life at the time and the way they were rocks for me then. The line ‘you’re my home now’ reflects that feeling of finding the person or people that you can cling to when you start out in the world.
