Pageant single “Beautiful (Caught up in the Moment)” premieres on GroundSounds

Pageant premieres their first single from their forthcoming Endless Sun EP on GroundSounds. Pageant’s Derek Porter had this to say about writing “Beautiful (Caught up in the Moment)”:

I wrote the song “Beautiful (Caught up in the Moment)” after ending a relationship and reflecting on what I wanted from a partner. Many people who hear the song think it’s about this ideal love I was experiencing, but truthfully it’s about what I wished I could have experienced. I considered what I’d learned in the past and how I wanted to apply that to my future. The second verse epitomizes that – ‘Repetition’s taught me love / is a balance beam we walk.’ So to me, the song is very melancholy, although I can see how it could be taken the other way. In a way, I really enjoy that dual perception and I understand that, depending on how you’re feeling, you could see it as an honest love song or an ironic break up song.
