“Won’t Stop Yet” is the first release from The Collection in 2022, following a trio of singles released in 2021, a trio of independently released albums since their debut in 2011, and an assortment of EPs and singles released throughout their history. Their indie-pop stylings endear them to fans of similar artists like Walk The Moon, Jukebox The Ghost, and fun.
“Won’t Stop Yet” has a melancholic undertone behind its veil of pop rock, which reflects on songwriter and lead singer David Wimbish’s intention to capture feelings that many around the world can empathize with relating to the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent shutdowns, while exploring what it might feel like to successfully move past that point in our collective history.
“It’s my version of an empowering anthem,” says Wimbish. “I want so badly to believe we’ll ‘get through this,’ but it doesn’t often feel true…so for now, it’s one-foot-in-front-of-the-other choruses and hopeful melodies.”
That ‘one day at a time’ kind of attitude is very familiar, and necessary in present times, but it is important to stay hopeful for better outcomes while existing within the realities we are facing directly in front of us. This sentiment expressed broadly throughout “Won’t Stop Yet” makes it possible for it to become an anthem for just about any difficult time a listener may be experiencing at any point in their own personal journey.
