70’s inspired rock band KEYS share song ‘The Strain’

The Strain’ is the third single taken from KEYS new album HOME SCHOOLING: A Collection of 4-track rarities, out on 21/08/20.

Matthew Evans Vocals/Guitar/Songwriting talks us through this personal of songs:

The Strain is about friendship. I knew it before, but lockdown has really brought home the importance of my friends to me. There’s a hurt at the heart of The Strain. I was trying to capture what I call the Swansea Soul. I was channelling Pete Hamm. I’m so proud that Badfinger come from Swansea. It blows my mind. I find it quite easy to tap into that sense of longing and what the Welsh call Hiraeth. It’s probably the most personal song I’ve ever written.”
