Is this a weird title for a single?

Is this a weird title for a single?

Feb 03, 2023

What life gives with one hand, it can take away with the other.

How do you keep your head, and your heart, when everything starts to crumble around you?

When your dream becomes a funeral pyre.

We explore these feelings of chaos and resilience on our new single ‘Mayday’ - coming Friday 17 February 2023. The song is named after the international distress signal used by ships and aircraft in peril and, in the story of TERRA NOVA, that is precisely the situation we find ourselves in when we arrive at this track.

Imagine a cacophony of thunder and an armada of towering waves with designs only on your complete destruction. And that's just for starters!

So ... why Mayday?

The song is named after the international distress signal used by ships and aircraft in peril and, in the story of TERRA NOVA, that is precisely the situation we find ourselves in when we arrive at this track.

You've probably heard of "SOS." Whilst a lot of people believe that it stands for "Save Our Souls," SOS stands for Save Our Ship, and it refers to the Morse code alert for a ship in distress.

Sibilant sounds like S can be tricky to distinguish over radio communication. "Esss" and "Efff" are easy to get confused - something that you don't want to risk during an emergency! Because of this, the original international distress signal "SOS" gave way to the words "May-day", the phonetic equivalent of "M'aidez", the French for "Help me."

Why French? Well ... we don't know! If you have the answer, write in and you'll be rewarded for your efforts.

Can you help make Mayday massive?

If you'd like to help make a big difference to the release, there are 2 things you can do right now. This will only take a couple of minutes of your time but it will help a lot!

So technically 2 and a half things! If you do them all, or whichever applies to you, write a comment here and you will receive something awesome.

Totally free.

Just a small thank you for your help.
