Sometimes, you just need a song that makes you feel like you can take on the world. Well, Rupert Stroud's got one for that. It's not the kind of song that will pump you full of aggression, or even hype you up. Stroud's "Along the Low," rather, uncurls itself gradually and inexorably. Musically, the song echoes its theme: the importance of patience and delayed gratification.
“The song has a very uplifting, summery, anthemic vibe to it - but the truth is when I wrote the song I was feeling very low,” explains Stroud. “The lyrics were inspired by long journeys and late nights to and from home on the road, in all weather conditions. By the time I recorded the song my mood had lifted but the meaning of the song still remained. It’s a song about perseverance and positivity in striving for success and achieving your goals. Ultimately, doing what you want to do with your life - regardless of the ups and downs - following your passion and never giving up. The life of a troubadour.”
