Following the news of their signing to SharpTone Records, post-hardcore quintet Captives have now shared their new single, ‘Glass Heart’.
This is what vocalist Matt Flood had to say about it.
“‘Glass Heart’ speaks about the fraudulence of our own sanity, self-worth & pride; caused by the fractures and cracks in toxic relationships and friendships.
We should not make one another feel like lesser people, nor should we let the toxicity of love and the need to be loved obstruct our vision of our own feelings and what’s important to us.
From questioning the sincerity and reasoning of the person before you, to subconsciously doubting your own gut feelings and second guessing yourself. ‘We should know better’ than to let the actions of another dictate our self-worth.
We wrote this song to bring ourselves to our own attention; to realise that while we all have weakness like our glass hearts, we can also see that we are stronger than we’re perceived.”
The band have also released a video for ‘Glass Heart’, which you can check out below.
More details surrounding their yet-to-be-announced debut album (produced by Dan Weller) will be confirmed soon.
