New Music: the eight five two

One of the most impressive debuts of the week comes courtesy of Australian based newcomers the eight five two.

Mysteriously dark, melancholic and intense in tone, ‘Shiver’ is a beautifully constructed indie-rock composition that feels truly unique in style.

Charged with deep emotion, the song is all about the disconnect of not being able to let go.

“A haunting past left behind that you can’t help but want more of. It’s the river flowing inside your mind, blocking out all other thoughts. With no hope of swimming against it, you’re left with a memory, a shiver, a sweet but violent current that runs down the back of your neck into your heart.”

With such an impressive introduction to the world, this collective of gifted musicians could well be one of Australia’s next big talents to garner global attention.
