Having recently debuted their first ever single ‘Run’, burgeoning UK rock act State Of You have unleashed another high octane track titled ‘The Perfect Storm’. “This song is about living with undiagnosed ADHD for most of my life and the destructive relationships I’ve been in because of that,” explains vocalist Steve Sitkowski of its visceral inspiration. “I was constantly using drugs to get away from myself and being in a dark place most of the time – That feeling of not belonging, being incapable of functioning in the real world and not being able to figure out why.”
With a shared desire to write straight-up rock ‘n’ roll songs (Sitkowski emphatically and proudly growls “This is British rock’n’roll” on ‘The Perfect Storm’), with the purpose of expelling personal demons, and to provoke discussion around issues in the world today, State Of You have risen from the ashes of several much-loved underground UK bands including Outcry Collective, Polar and Hildamay. Their two newly released tracks will be included on their forthcoming self-titled debut EP, set for release 02 September via Silent Cult Recordings.
