Brisbane alt-rock trio Torizon share triumphant new single Martyr, launching live on the Gold Coast this weekend supporting Bridge Left To Burn on the Bitter Endings East Coast Tour.
Mixed and mastered by Chris Blancato (Northlane, Reliqa, Vilify), new single Martyr is written from the perspective of a person dealing with previous underlying trauma that finally finds themselves ready to break out of a narcissistic relationship.
Vocalist Mish Sharma explains: “The lyrics explore the victim grappling with the reality of the situation and deciding to leave; even though the trauma brain is persistent about staying because it feels ‘familiar’.”
Sharma draws from personal experience on Martyr, taking a stand against toxicity and empowering listeners to do the same. “Statistically, the likelihood of adults with childhood trauma ending up in dysfunctional and abusive relationships is very high,” says Sharma. “As someone with complex PTSD – treated – I found myself in multiple abusive relationships. With the help of a great mental health care team, all my connections now are safe and supportive.”
The trio will play Vinnies Dive Bar on the Gold Coast this weekend to launch their new single live, supporting Bridge Left To Burn on the Queensland leg of their Bitter Endings East Coast tour. Tickets on sale now!
