Having just performed a raucous set at Download Festival over the weekend, Newcastle, Australia’s Eat Your Heart Out have released the brand new track “Carousel” via Fearless Records / Caroline Australia.
The song was produced by Zach Tuch and co-written by Patrick Miranda of Movements. It’s the perfect execution of the band’s potent and patented blend of pop, punk, grunge, and rock, all the while delivering an impactful and weighty lyrical sentiment. It’s truly a taste of what’s come on the band’s next effort for Fearless Records.
“‘Carousel’ is about the constant cycle of thoughts in your head that go back and forth between doubting yourself and believing that you aren’t good enough, and then having a moment of clarity when you know you’re being irrational,” the band said, offering insight into the song. “A lot of it comes from the idea of ‘imposter syndrome,’ which a lot of people, especially women, experience at some point, where you can’t acknowledge your own achievements properly and believe that you are undeserving, and there’s a constant fear that it will all unravel and you’ll be exposed.”
Hailing from Newcastle, Eat Your Heart Out—Caitlin Henry [vocals], Andrew Anderson [guitar], Will Moore [guitar], Dom Cant [bass], and Jake Cronin [drums]— carry on the tradition of Australia’s impressive history of musical outliers from Nick Cave and Silverchair to The Amity Affliction and Parkway Drive, but they do so unequivocally on their own terms. The groups grunge-y pastiche of emo energy, punk power, and pop palatability immediately ignited excitement around the world upon their emergence in 2012. Along the way, the quartet released two EPs, Distance Between Us (2015) and Carried Away(2017), inked a deal with Fearless Records, and have supported artists such as Trophy Eyes, Hands Like Houses, Knuckle Puck, Real Friends, and many others. Everything paved way for the group’s 2017 EP, Mind Games[Fearless Records / Caroline Australia], which shows the band aren’t afraid to open up. Their lyrical honesty ensures that the message resonates loudly in the end.
