Melbourne-based heavy outfit THE LAST MARTYR return with a vengeance with new single “Afterglow”, a hard-hitting and nostalgic bop about young love and reflection through rose coloured glasses. The track itself features a huge chorus with a twist in the middle via a trap second verse.
Vocalist, Monica Strut, shares the story behind the tune: “Afterglow was written as an apology to a past lover whose heart I kind of trod on. It was this push/pull, will they/won’t they situation where it was hard to tell if love was actually apparent or if the idea of love was the appeal. In the end, fear and doubt got in the way before anything could eventuate.”
