It's a celebration of human empathy...

Welsh group Estrons have shared biting new song 'Lilac' - tune in now.

The band recently dived into the studio with producer Alex Newport, working on fresh material and pushing themselves further and further.

New song 'Lilac' packs a punch, but underneath that killer chorus lies a lesson in human empathy.

The lyrics owe a debt to a chance encounter with a teenage girl, with singer Tali Källström picking up the story...

"I drove past her crying in the street with her shoes in her hand and so I decided to turn the car around to check on her. I'd assumed that she was crying about something superficial and I'd also assumed that the man walking a few feet behind her was trying to take advantage. Turns out the man actually lived on that street and the girl was heartbroken because her dad had just been diagnosed with terminal cancer."

"We often get things wrong because society leads us to create prejudices on genders; the song is myself reflecting on that. It also celebrates human empathy as the girl I helped was genuinely touched that I'd stopped to check she got home okay."

"I haven't seen her since that day - but this one goes out to her, anybody who is going through a difficult time and also to all the people out there who have helped me in a crisis. Someone always cares and you can get through it."

Tune in now.
