Denver alt-rockers Suitable Miss just released their new album, "In Color", and to celebrate we asked Sarah Perez to tell us about the single "Forever" ft. Magnolia Park's Joshua Roberts. Here is the story:
The incredible thing about being in a band is that we are very close to one another. I'm so grateful to work with musicians who are also my best friends. A way that we often write songs is we sit down and have a conversation about our lives and what we're feeling passionate about at that time. Our best songs come from real life experiences. Honestly, a lot of the songs come from my own personal heartbreak that I've had to endure throughout my life. The meaning of our song "Forever" really comes down to being in a toxic relationship and holding onto it, even when you know it's bad for you. The self-convincing can be catastrophic to your mental health. (continue)
