Speaking about the single, lead guitarist Sean Whelan says: “The song is written from the perspective of someone offering support and understanding to a friend suffering from mental health issues. The changing rhythms and tempo throughout the single reflect the ebb and flow of mental health. As a band we want to fight the stigma attached to mental health issues and start a discourse encouraging people to talk more openly about it.”

The Bounty is made up of Sean Whelan on lead guitar, Andrew O’Riordan on lead vocals and acoustic guitar with Barry Meaney on bass guitar and Adam Clarke on percussion. The Bounty has a unique sound moulded by influences from indie, blues, funk and classic rock. Formed in 2016 The Bounty met on the CSN course for ‘Music, Management & Sound’. They write, record and produce music in their own studio. They will play Crane Lane in Cork on October 10th and Central Arts in Waterford on October 12th.
