Aussie Alt-Papers Eat Your Heart Out have shared the video of their latest track, ‘Down’.
“The lyrics were inspired by the idea of social media addiction, and specifically, when you’re comparing yourself to others or see a negative comment about yourself or your art from some random person on the Internet and you know you shouldn’t give it any weight, but sometimes, you do it anyway,” the band says, pulling back the curtain to reveal the song’s incredibly topical theme. “You always come out feeling worse, but it’s so easy to become addicted to the quick validation of social media.”
Furthermore, the band states, “We had a lot of fun recording ‘Down’ and experimenting with some different guitar sounds. As one of the heavier and rockier songs on the record, it is already one of our favorites to play live.”
