Melbourne post-hardcore troupe Drown This City have just dropped a video for ‘Stay Broken’, the latest cut to come from their recently released EP, ‘Alpha // Survivor’.
This is what vocalist Alex Reade had to say about the song.
“Basically I’m speaking to myself. I’m saying, ‘I can bury this pain for you inside, and you’ll fall, and you’ll stay broken, or I can carry this pain and help you heal and you can soar and rise and embrace your strength as an alpha.’
The main hook in the lyrics – ‘Alpha, realise your power’ – I think really encapsulates the whole message of the EP and what we believe in. Turn your fight on, don’t be afraid of your own power, your own ability to heal and be strong and be above everyone else, even if it’s lonely up there – it’s where you belong.”
You can stream and watch the video for ‘Stay Broken’ below.
The band’s second EP, ‘Alpha // Survivor’, is out now via UNFD.
