On the new track, the band shares: “‘Six Feet Closer’ is about learning that you might not actually love someone, you’re just addicted to them. I lived in a fantasy; a shallow, superficial relationship that I thought was right. I was at ‘the end of my rope’. I let go of my morals, my values and my sense of self to be with this person, and it ultimately left me with nothing – much like a drug. I wanted that person so much that it ultimately destroyed me and I had to leave.
I didn’t have the strength to say what I wanted to say in person, so the lyrics to ‘Six Feet Closer’ is what I wish I had said to that person.”
You Wish This Was About You, presents a sonic shift for the Australian melodic hardcore band, who previously released music as Easy Life. The album brings the aggression and energy Easy Life built their name on and mixes it with modern take on heavy emotional music with electronic flourishes and an exploration of string arrangements. The band recreates themselves with a sense of atmosphere and darkness. Listening back to what they had crafted it made them realize they were an entirely different band to Easy Life, inspiring the name change to After Touch.
You Wish This Was About You features five brand new empowering tracks that focus on standing strong and believing in yourself after a toxic relationship. The forthcoming release, which deals with the perils of placing your entire self-worth in another person when ultimately only you can make yourself happy, follows the band’s previous EP, There Can’t Be This Much Water In The Sky (2017).
After Touch formed in 2014 with the goal of escaping their small town and taking the unknown road. Fueled by ambition, in their short time together, After Touch found a home on triple j Unearthed Radio with an “Artist Spotlight” and a rotation add of their previous single “I’m Fading Away”. The band has previously shared the stage with Trophy Eyes, Northlane, The Story So Far, and Dream on Dreamer.
After Touch is Max Pasalic (vocals), Kurt Haywood (bass), Jack Rankin (guitar), Jesse Mate-Gallo (guitar), Jordan Pranic (drums).
