Australia’s heavy music vanguards Northlane have shared their expansive new single, Dante, out now via Believe. Dante is the first piece of new music since the release of their #1 album Obsidian (2022) and signals a new era for the four-piece.
Dante is an instant Northlane classic years in the making. Dubbed by the band as ‘4D on steroids’, Dante was originally written by guitarist/songwriter Jon Deiley as a pure dance track not intended for Northlane. The band spent a year developing the song to fit their signature sound, resulting in an emotionally heavy track carried by a compulsive beat that opens up to a panoramic chorus.
The striking lyrics carry a lot of weight, as frontman Marcus Bridge explains: “Dante is a song about losing someone close to us. As we try to process our grief, we are constantly asking ourselves questions, memories clouded with reminders of our loved one’s pain, wondering if there’s anything we could have done.”
