It’s A Cold October- Behind The Music with Escondido


Cold October is about picking yourself up after a break-up.  It’s about how hard it is to leave someone you love even though you know it’s for the best.  The verses are reminiscent of good times and memories… coming to grips with where it went wrong.  But once the chorus hits we lay out the truth.. “The old you still had a foot in the door but the new you is already gone.”  I wouldn’t want to be on the receiving end of this song. Musically speaking, Cold October is a frankenstein of a couple songs.  Jess had written a song called Cold October with our friend Leanne… we took that chorus and made it a verse and an old unused song of mine became the new chorus.  We ended up re-writing all the lyrics but we kept the title because it’ a good metaphor for both sides. – Tyler James / Escondido 


Been wrapping up the new record… It will be out next year but we’ll give ya some sneak peaks in the coming months. xo

loved you until the truth came knocking darlin’
it’s a cold october
that’s the old me talking, the new me’s walking
some hearts are just made for locking darlin’
its a cold october
