Melbourne-based Catholic duo The SAGA release their latest track Lonely One
today, a toe-tapping pop single with a positive message combatting the epidemic of loneliness.
The song's message, according to The SAGA musicians Alyssa Agius and Georga Byrne, is about giving people hope in the times when they feel most isolated.
‘We were all going through some challenges when we wrote this song but when we came together, we realised that God was allowing us all to go through these trials so that we could empathise with all those who struggle,’ said Alyssa.
‘We realised that with so many voices in the world, it can be so easy to feel alone, so we wanted to write a song that reminds people that there is always someone there carrying us through.’
Next month, The SAGA will perform the song and their two previous tunes at The Australian Catholic Youth Festival (ACYF) in Perth, a national event that attracts over 5,000 young people.
Earlier this year, the pair performed at a World Youth Day concert in Panama, before a crowd of over 40,000.
The SAGA's debut EP is set to be released before ACYF in early December.
