“At the time Dry the River were in something of a wilderness, creatively and temporally,” Peter Liddle has said of the song. “For me, ‘Everlasting Light’ represents the path out of the wilderness – a kind of unlikely moment of clarity where we remembered what it’s like to be a band in a room.”
“The combative video came from these themes – of getting back up after a setback, dusting ourselves off. The black belts are real, and so is the pain.”
