The year isn’t over for Glasgow-based The Ninth Wave just yet, with the band coming through with another gem, this time with ‘Everything Will Be Fine’. The new single comes after their dynamic and spellbinding EP Happy Days! earlier this year. 

Their anthemic single provides reassuring words of hope for anyone who has felt overwhelmed by the year and its many turns. According to Haydn Park-Patterson from The Ninth Wave, the song’s first version was originally written last year. “I wrote the first version of it in the summer of last year and it was originally intended to be a song for someone else’s comfort and reassurance. It was shelved until earlier this year, when I stripped it down and kept only the name of the song. It then became the twisted optimistic song that it is now after it was brought in, stripped down and rebuilt by us in the studio.”

Park-Patterson also notes that it’s the most optimistic song they’ve recorded. “It’s a song about twisted optimism, self-reassurance and hope.” Also adding, “The overall message of the song seems fitting for the world that we’ve found ourselves in now. Like many of our songs, it has existed in various different incarnations.”

When the future feels uncertain, it’s songs like ‘Everything Will Be Fine’ that reminds us that things will be okay.
