Jackson Colt comments on the track
“‘Reckless Love’ tells a story about “loving somebody who you are not meant to be with. The first verse depicts the beginning of the two lovers journey being exciting and ignorant. The second verse contrasts this by showing the final stages of being miserable. The chorus acts as a rationalisation that both lovers display in which they believe that the reckless nature of the love is normal.”
“The lyrics deal with the idea of challenging fate and the insanity that comes with trying to believe that everything is in place. The song begins with the lovers cross paths on a one way street which is a clear indication from the start that things aren’t meant to be. Someone is going the wrong way.”
“The song has a very upbeat classic rock style to it. This was done to convey the hopes for two lovers, while the lyrics acting as the underlying truth/voice in our heads both are trying to ignore.”
“Recording the song with producer Dale Schnettler (Prime Circle & The DrumJ Experience) was incredible. We wanted to capture the classic rock sound through big harmonies while still keeping the bouncy rhythm . We also harmonised a few chords at the end of the choruses which was interesting as mostly single notes are harmonised.”
