The spicy track is a follow up from their recent success of their last single Can’t Hide From What Hurts.
Frontman Alex Moses tells how the new release touches on anxiety and the concept of existence, and with the current climate of the world, it’s something we can all relate to.
“Out Of Time is a song I wrote about my experience with the persistent background static of worry that fills our heads, and often goes unnoticed,” says Moses.
“It’s so easy to feel an overwhelming sense of dread or helplessness towards situations in our lives, let alone towards a global pandemic disease. Out Of Time is about my own personal realisation that worry and dread are shortening our lives, and we are all in fact—if we choose to be—running out of time.”
The band teamed up with producer Joel Quartermain (Meg Mac, Fergus James, G Flip), while mixing and mastering was done in Massachusetts by Jay Maas (State Champs, Citizen, Title Fight) and Alan Douches at West West Side Music in New York respectively.
Since forming in 2012, Columbus have seen themselves reach success through Triple J Unearthed, putting them in the spotlight to tour with the likes of Birds Of Tokyo, The Ataris, You Me At Six and Trophy Eyes, while securing spots at Soundwave, UNIFY and NYE On The Hill festivals, all while having one of the most played songs on the triple j rotation at the time.
