“Undone”, the new Watershed single is here. Uncertainty, Confusion, unpredictable – these were just some of the phrases that dominated the headlines last year when the pandemic hit and they’re also at the epicentre of Watershed’s new hit single.
For the first single off their seventh studio album titled Elephant in the Room, lead singer and songwriter Craig Hinds channelled his creativity during lockdown into writing “Undone” which pays homage to those emotions of uncertainty and confusion most of us felt when the pandemic hit our shores last year.
Craig Hinds explains “Undone”
“At the time, like a lot of people, I was questioning everything that was going on. At the same time, you are also trying to keep things as normal as you can, even though you know that something is drastically wrong.”
It focuses on that feeling of unravelling because of this constant questioning as seen in the lyric: “It’s got me hiding all my loved ones and trying to keep a smile on…”. “Undone” takes a more rock, up-tempo approach as opposed to the ballad you’d expect from a song that deals with such heavy source material.
Craig Hinds from Watershed explains why the band chose this track as the first single
“The band and our live shows have moved in that direction, and so we chose this track as the first single to set a certain tone for the whole album which is more live and guitar driven.”
