Indie favourites CIEL have mixed together all the best parts of alt-pop, shoegaze and dream-pop with their latest offering, ‘Never Alone Again’.

With deeply personal lyrics and ethereal, dreamy guitars, ‘Never Alone Again’ is sure to be a fast favourite among fans of the band. This track takes a look at darker life experiences and what it means to relive them. Vocalist and guitarist Michelle Hendriks says this:

“Sometimes I spend quite a long time crafting the lyrics for a certain song. This wasn’t the case for ‘Never Alone Again’. The lyrics were just there, like they appeared out of nowhere, but they were accurately reflecting my feelings at the time. It’s quite scary to me to release this song into the world as the lyrics are very personal and intimate. I never really speak much about these feelings from the past to people around me – even close friends. But it’s the reason why this song feels really close and honest to me. It’s a part of my life’s story. I think it’s important to actually be able to speak about these subjects more openly in our society.”
