Melbourne metalcore outfit Drown This City have announced their new EP Colours We Won’t Know will be released on Friday May 28 via UNFD.
Following their new single and video “New Burn Order” last month, the band are following up with a fierce new cut from the EP titled “Borderline Existence”.
Drown This City vocalist Alex Reade shares how the track’s haunting scenario – depicting a person’s out of body experience watching on at themselves trapped in an asylum – represents the agitation and anger she’s experienced feeling forced to pursue a certain path due to external pressure placed on her.
“I’ve found myself wearing thin because of this, wondering what I was fighting against and how long could I keep going for. This song reflects the battle I feel to succeed against all odds, fuelled by sheer terror that my life will be for nothing,” she shares.
“The line ‘I really thought that I’d amount to something, I should have known you’d get me in the end’ really reflects the exhaustion I feel wondering if I can keep going with this fight to be heard and understood. I’m exhausted, always pushing against, trying to win, trying to get ‘there’ and I just don’t know where that is anymore.”
