Hindsight – Loveover (Track Of The Day, 20th September)

Is a “Loveover” like a hangover, but caused by love?

Adelaide’s Hindsight powerfully express the raw after-effects of love gone wrong in our Track Of The Day. “Loveover” comes from the melodic hardcore band’s Disposable Paradise EP, released last year.

Heavily weighed down under the veil of abandonment, “Loveover” starts gently, slowly and clean vocally. The ‘loveover’ is intense, feeling like waking alone in a place with no familiar comforts, and is making it hard to move or think clearly, feeling stuck.

Soon comes an outpouring of self-beration through gritted teeth. Confusion and desperation sting, seeing oneself stuck and with no way forward and no clear answers. This dizzying head-f*ck of an aftermath is worsened by the addition of alcohol, and yet it continues; heartache and self-abuse to numb.

“I bought the last thing that I fucking need
Another bottle to wash away this awful dream
Reminding me that I will never get to be with you
What am I suppose to do?”

“Loveover” is such a powerful song, expressed raw-ly and passionately. The wildness of the unclean vocals is such a vulnerable expression of the pain of being broken emotionally, not knowing what to do, and having no clear grip on hope or answers.

“Loveover”‘s 2 minutes 14 seconds, culminating in a powerful ending with tandem vocals, are moving from start to finish. Watch the music video below.

Hindsight are currently on tour with Justice For The Damned on their Dragged Through The Dirt tough. If you’re quick you can catch them in Adelaide or Melbourne. Details at www.greyscalerecords.oztix.com.au.
