Meadowlark’s emotive new single “Quicksand” was written by the Bristol based duo (Kate McGill; vocals and keys and Dan Broadley; guitars) after they were moved by a story on Humans of New York (HONY), about a family working in a brick kiln in Pakistan. “We were so heartbroken reading these stories,” Kate explains. “We get so swept up in our lives and forget how lucky we are on a daily basis. We wanted to acknowledge these incredibly brave people and all those who devote their lives to helping them.” You can read the harrowing story behind and the heartwarming fundraising result via HONY. “Quicksand” is out now on Apple Music and Spotify. Meadowlark will embark on a UK headline tour throughout September and October; you can view their full schedule on Facebook.
