Melbourne metal outfit To Octavia have returned with their latest single “The Sound Of The Rain”, a punchier and more dynamic release to what fans of the band have come to expect.
A shift in the band’s line-up and time away from music has left the young band hungry for more success, with vocalist Merry Kirk-Holmes and guitarist Justin Keurntjes sitting down with HEAVY to discuss the new single and their upcoming sophomore EP Somewhere in a World, Not of the Dream.
“We tried to bring in a lot of our inspirations,” Justin explained, “which is something that we haven’t felt that we’ve done before. You can say that it’s a combination of alternative metal with a bit of everything.”
In the full interview, Justin and Merry talk about the song in greater detail, its musical direction, how it differs from previous releases, the sound of the upcoming EP, finding your musical voice and more.
