Sydney metalcore outfit Broken Earth have unleashed their first taste of new music in a year and, much like their band name, the lyrics and inspiration behind the new single ‘Dance in the Dark’ is very topical in light of the world’s current state amidst Covid-19. Beginning with a brutal riff-heavy intro, the chorus soars into post-hardcore territory, and it’s quite an uplifting track to get you through these dark times. Vocalist Raphael Smith shares his perspective on how to get through the next few months:
“The events we’re currently facing are probably some of the toughest we’ve seen on a global scale in a long time, and there isn’t much of an end in sight. The rage that we feel is almost matched with the despair, but we can’t let feelings of powerlessness overcome us. So with that being said, we would love to be able to share this song as a message of hope and perseverance, that even in the darkest times you can still find someone or something that holds you close – Dance In The Dark with us”
