First came their new song ‘New Burn Order‘ back at the start of April, along with the news of Toby Thomas joining the band as their new bassist/unclean vocalist and now Drown This City have announced their new EP Colours We Won’t Know is set for release on May 28th via UNFD and to celebrate they’ve got another track for us all!
‘Borderline Existence’ has arrived and frontwoman Alex Reade revealed the track was inspired by the external pressures she’s faced to follow a certain path:
“I’ve found myself wearing thin because of this, wondering what I was fighting against and how long could I keep going for. This song reflects the battle I feel to succeed against all odds, fuelled by sheer terror that my life will be for nothing… The line ‘I really thought that I’d amount to something, I should have known you’d get me in the end’ really reflects the exhaustion I feel wondering if I can keep going with this fight to be heard and understood. I’m exhausted, always pushing against, trying to win, trying to get ‘there’ and I just don’t know where that is anymore.”
On the band’s forthcoming EP release, which Toby was also the co-lyricist for, he explained further:
“Colours We Won’t Know is an exploration of cognitive distortions depicted from different perspectives and stories, ultimately derived from our experiences… The songs discuss the results of trauma and mental illness, along with the effects this has on our own environments and those around us. It both embraces and challenges hope in the face of personal awareness and growth.”
