Darwin melodic hardcore band have just dropped an incredible track. “Dark Shade” released yesterday, after premiering on Triple J’s Home and Hosed.
“Dark Shade” is endearing from the outset, with the vulnerable honesty landing at our feet after a rhythmic and curiosity rich introduction. The vocals are warm as well as surrendered to how things are.
The track describes the emotional experience of being hurt and left, and wanting to break free of that pattern that keeps showing up. It’s heart-aching (and tear-jerking) in the searching for answers to stop being abandoned.
“Cause no ever needed me
I’ve always been disposable
No one ever needed me
I’ve always been left to suffer on my own”
“Dark Shade” has powerful choruses, yet gains even more strength at the bridge when raw ache pours out in a futile attempt to change, with no guidance being forthcoming. It’s impressive and moving, and whatever Tapestry are making behind the scenes, more of it would be good, please.
Let yourself feel “Dark Shade” via the music video.
The band are celebrating the launch of “Dark Shade” at Railway Club. Check the details below.
