Single from the first album Here We Are also entered triple j rotation. Now is the time for something new. Silence is anything but; it’s raucous, it’s melodic, and it’s sporting a diamond-hard edge.
Easily digestible and catchy, it hits your feels like a 4:45am Maccas run after one of those thrilling nights out.
This single is certainly hard-driving; it lends off Linkin Park vibes through singer Pete Repousis; distant and aloof one minute and letting fly with almost-kinda-unclean rage the next. Piledriving riffs crumble away to reveal crystalline leads, as if a million spotlights suddenly turn from Pete and on to guitarist Simon Kapsis, a wanton display of fret burning heroism and hard rock swagger. It never overstays its welcome though, breezing through in a flash. A reprise of that sumptuous “A” riff rounds off the track, which will see fingers on “repeat” buttons more often than not.
Easily digestible and catchy, it hits your feels like a 4:45am Maccas run after one of those thrilling nights out; full of that contented, yet guilty, afterglow.
