Sydney-based alternative outfit Bellwether construct anthemic pieces of punk-pop that feel fresh and new, while also maintaining a charming essence of nostalgia.
Produced by Stevie Knight (Stand Atlantic, Yours Truly, The Dead Love) and mixed by JamesPaul Wisner (Paramore, Underoath), ‘Halfway Happy’ is an emotional and poignant track that discloses the viscous nature of harmful people.
“’Halfway Happy’ comes from a place of being trapped in the company of someone that makes you feel like you’re always falling short. The song focuses a lot on this pattern of constantly questioning every part of ourselves and feeling like we’re simply not good enough – for ourselves or those around us. When we’re with someone that is always making us doubt ourselves, it’s easy to fall into that mindset and second guess every aspect of ourselves. Reflecting on these kinds of experiences, we see our past mistakes and regrets take shape in the form of insecurities that impact us every day, even years on.”
Taken from the upcoming debut EP ‘Impermanence’, due out 8th April 2022.
