Melbourne post-hardcore outfit Phoenix Day are rising out of the ashes with their brand new single ‘Follow Me Down’. The track features some hard-hitting riffs, conflicting with emotional lyrics intertwining through the melody. Rightly so, as the song is an anthem for a love turned sour. The band shares:
“It follows the bitterness of dissension and an argument that can never be resolved. The song sways back and forth from the quiet tension of an impending disagreement, to the viciousness of its peak.
The symbolism of water used throughout the music video represents the suffocating nature of this endless cycle as it makes one feel as though they are drowning in a void of anger and misery. The more sinister element of the tale is the implication of a desire to continue this toxic pattern, suggesting a love of confrontation. Do you like me? Then fight me; let me pull you down the path of discord.“
‘Follow Me Down’ shows great potential for the up & comers, and if you’re all about upcoming Aussie music in similar veins to Hands Like Houses, Phoenix Day will meet your tastes!
