Today, Friday April 5thMy Silent Wake have unveiled the second single from their incredible twelfth album, Lost In Memories, Lost In Grief, that will be released by Ardua Music on May 3rdLavender Garden is an absolute highlight on an album full of stunning songs; musically sublime and lyrically beautiful. Guitarist, vocalist and composer Ian Arkley shares his thoughts on the songs adventurous musical spirit and reveals the story behind the lyrics, which while deeply personal will also be relatable to so many…

“The music is very much inspired by classic doom, metal and rock, which is the music I grew up with. Simon‘s Yamaha Reface YC organ and lead vox add to the classic feel. Gareth and Addam both play their parts perfectly and everything gels so well on this song. I added a few background growls along with all my guitar parts and have to say that I am proud of what the four of us have acheived here. Greg Chandler handled the studio as faultlessly as ever and again has given us the sound we hoped for. The song describes a young woman in a beautiful place amongst all the things she desires. After a while, the song she sings to herself is interupted by voices and it is made apparent that she is inside a room rather than in the garden of her dreams. The song tells of her losing her grasp on reality but being at peace in her own world. The woman is old and is an Alzheimer’s sufferer in a home. The song is based upon my mother who suffered with Alzheimer’s but passed away in 2022 from heart failure, well before she lost who she was completely to that awful disease. It is what I imagined she was experiencing in her mind. I know she thought she was young and she loved her garden and the birds and especially loved the scent of lavender. In the end it is the place we wish she could forever be, in eternal bliss.”
