out of stock

slowly builds in force from a wistful lullaby to an unexpectedly buoyant climax, this sparse but powerful song is likely to appeal to fans of perfume genius or jacob's stories/stuart warwick.

the 23 year-old songwriter, winston yellen, is The creative voice of Night Beds, hailing from Nashville by way of Colorado Springs. ‘Even If We Try’ was recorded in a self-built studio in the former home of Johnny Cash located in Hendersonville, TN. The song was formed on his drives to and from Nashville and Hendersonville. The B-side, ‘You Were Afraid’, was the first song a then 18 year-old Winston Yellen wrote with Night beds in mind. The song recounts the gut wrenching realisation of an imminent end to a relationship and the bittersweetness that can come with it.
