Life is full of those unexpected moments that can throw a spin into things to come. Never mind if they’re lighthearted or near-tragic, twists are what make our tomorrows. And Manchester-based songwriter Dom Major’s beautiful new song, “Both Burn Bright”, documents such a life-affirming experience.

Major explains the backstory, β€œIt was snowing, the weather was terrible and I did my mate a favour by going because nobody else would. After we crashed the car, me and my Dad were sat in the snow with no phone. Out of nowhere a girl I was seeing at the time pulled over and gave me and my Dad a lift home, the whole thing was surreal.”

Rip the car in speeding traffic
the weathers bad, you said I’ve got a jacket
Let me down by the side of the road
where the snows cold
come on and get me home

At its heart, this track is a classic story song. A tale of circumstance, redemption, and hope. Words meticulously placed and punctuated by that gentle soul-grabbing guitar. And if you’re a fan of Dan Auerbach, James Taylor and/or Iron & Wine, then add this one to your life-is-unpredictable playlist.

“Both Burn Bright” is available now via Babywoman Records.

lay me down
your room has swallowed the daylight
alright ill spend the night
if we both fight
6 am there’s sunlight
Then we both burn bright
