Fans of sad acoustic vibes will be hype to hear "Alice", a single by Timid, the Brave. The introspective track takes listeners on a bitter journey, exploring the theme of dealing with the loss of a loved one and what's left behind. Featuring distant, crooning slide guitar and the occasional group OoO's and Ahh's, the song is ideal for a late night listen or a main-character-comes-to-grips-with-something terrible movie montage.

Talking about the story behind "Alice" and what it means to him, Timid reflected:
"I wrote “Alice” several years ago after my grandmother passed away. After her funeral, there was this really bizarre moment in my grandparent’s apartment when my grandfather called us all upstairs to their bedroom. He had laid out all of her old jewelry on their bed and we took turns selecting pieces of the jewelry. I chose a piece that really stood out to me: a necklace with a single leaf that had been dipped in gold. That image connected with me, the idea that something so fragile and temporary could be clothed in something so valuable and enduring, that our lives hold extraordinary meaning despite their impermanence. That’s the image the song was born out of. It’s a song about love and life and death, and finding a way to fight through the varying levels of devastation that we all experience."
Once you wipe away your tears, you may just smile again knowing that "Alice" is a single that is a part of a full-length release, Firesale, due out Friday, February 24th.
