The second single from Steve Lamacq's BBC 6 Music 'One to Watch 2021' Test Card Girl 'If You're Feeling Down' is OUT NOW. Written and recorded during lockdown, this mood-enhancing song is a gentle rallying cry to be a source of strength and hope for others as we emerge from a dark winter into Spring. Opening with an ambient drone that remains constant throughout the track, simple finger-picked guitar leads the way to an emerging world of distant drums and floating cinematic piano melodies. The song allows for a few moments of reflective calm in an increasingly overwhelming world. Download the EPK and watch a special 'at-home' version HERE
