Following on from their dynamic EP ‘Whatever Happens’, Sydney-based indie-punk band Down For Tomorrow have returned offering gifts in their contemplative new single ‘Good Person’, and sentimental B-side ‘Full Circle’ – produced and mixed by Stevie Knight (Stand Atlantic, Yours Truly, The Dead Love).
‘Good Person’ explores the mellower elements of the band, opening with calming guitars and a dreamlike melody. The verses swell and crescendo into commanding choruses, complete with imperious drums, and packed layers of driven guitars and gripping bass, where the authoritative vocals of frontman Cody Stebbings produce a powerful message about staying positive in difficult situations.
“’Good Person’ is about coming to terms with the fact that we are responsible for our own lives”, explains Stebbings. “It traverses that understanding that we are a manifestation of our knowledge and experiences, and that life’s content reflects our truest thoughts.”
Reflecting more of their traditional sound, ‘Full Circle’ is an outburst of angst-driven punk with fierce riffs, hammering drums, and sweaty singalongs. The band’s well-founded rhythm section compliments the exquisite production, with Stebbings’ dutiful vocals highlighting the discomfort about illusional progression.
“’Full Circle’ is a quick return to the feelings that gave life and blood to our earlier offerings” mentions Stebbings. “A reminder that it is possible to progress and see improvement by visiting the past from time to time.”
To coincide with the release, the band will embark on a run of shows across NSW with Sydney-based counterparts and label buddies FANGZ. This continues on from a stint of shows throughout November 2020, where the band supported heavyweights Stand Atlantic and RedHook, along with selling out their own local headliner on Sydney’s North Shore.
Singles off ‘Whatever Happens’ were widely embraced by the likes of Spotify and Apple Music, and radio stations triple j, triple j Unearthed, Passport Approved, FBi Radio, SYN FM, and Aussie Music Weekly. The tracks also received praise from online blogs Rock Sound (UK), Pilerats, Life Without Andy, NME, Music Feeds, The Australian Music Scene, and AAA Backstage. The accompanying music videos for ‘Survive’ and “Trouble Prone’ were added to rotation on the ABC’s Rage.
