Drown This City Sign With UNFD, Release New Music
Melbourne’s own Drown This City are officially part of the UNFD family! With their recently announced signing to UNFD, the band have come out swinging with new single ‘In Your Image’, taken from their upcoming EP Alpha // Survivor. The band took a brief step out of the spotlight, with singer Alex Reade telling how they’ve channeled their recent pain and triumph into their music. "We’ve been through heart ache, break downs, low moments and the highest of highs and together have only gotten stronger," she explains. "We've supported each other to be powerful as well as vulnerable, and through this connection we’ve come out of dark times and rebuilt Drown This City, ready to be released in its new form."
New single ‘In Your Image’ explores Reade’s fascination with the idea of a powerful survivor and a broken victim residing in herself, with Reade explaining “You can be the most powerful creator in one moment, and the weakest broken soul in the next, it’s just a choice, and the battle is only ever within yourself and with your thoughts. All of these songs are about that message and how they relate in love and life and an ongoing quest for self-discovery and empowerment. 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.” The band are excited about their new chapter on the UNFD label, with Reade saying "Although we are beside ourselves with energy, there’s such a sense of calm now that we have a home, and more of a future than ever before in this band. We’ve all sacrificed blood, sweat and sanity, and to know we have support to show the world who we are is genuinely a dream come true." Drown This City will celebrate the newir EP with a run of east coast shows in July and August.
Alpha // Survivor is out Friday July 5 via UNFD.
