Championing metalcore with meaning, the track houses huge melodies and melancholic lyricism. It was heavily inspired by mental health struggles, undoubtedly making it a huge source of catharsis for the band.
Alongside the single comes a brand new music video directed by Colin Jeffs, with the concept by frontman Nathaniel Smith. We do have to put a trigger warning with this one. The clip is a tough watch, but it does bring the heavy lyrical themes to life.
If you ask us, tracks like this feel more necessary now than ever before. Statistics have shown that lockdown living has caused a spike in the number of people reporting symptoms of anxiety or depression disorders. Exit (Inward) is visually, sonically and thematically intense. It does a damn good job of showing the ugly parts of mental illness and destigmatizes it in the process. By throwing about a whole lot of pain and anguish, the track shows just how common these emotions are- and how comforting heavy music can be.
Lune came together in 2019, bringing together former I, Valiance guitarist Krys Smith, his brother Nathaniel Smith, David Freeland, Tyler Hendley, and Harrison Mills. They released their debut EP, Ghost, last year, amassing over half a million streams across the major streaming platforms. They recently toured with Gravemind and sold out a home-town show at Stay Gold in Melbourne.
