The music of BANNERS ascends towards steeple-size heights, lifted by frontman Michael Nelson’s dynamic delivery and exquisite song craft, as well as the robust presence and impressive instrumental chops of his band. The group hones this expansive and cinematic delivery in 2019 with a bevy of new releases and extensive touring around the world.
Last week, the Liverpool based act released the inspirational track, “Got It In You.” Released in its acoustic form first, the piano-driven track serves as a positive personal affirmation co-written with Sarah Emily Berrios. Underpinned by resounding chords, the lyrics transmit an important message, “You can’t tell that you’re bigger than the sea that you’re sinking in, and you don’t know what you got, but you got it at your fingertips…you got it in you.”
“It was specifically written to someone I really care about,” he goes on. “I’m basically saying, ‘You can do it. You’ve got this’. It’s easy to convince yourself anything good that has happened up until today is due to somebody else’s talent. So, it’s a subconscious reminder to myself I can do it as well. It was the first time I was back at the piano following my own internal compass. It worked out well.”
