Introducing Behind You, share caustic single ‘Burning’
PRAISE FOR Behind You
‘Burning‘ is out now, buy/stream it here.
Introducing local electronic punks Behind You with their new song ‘Burning’ accompanied by an enthralling self-directed video. Written during the peak of crisis, ‘Burning’ is an anthem for the end times. Listen HERE, watch HERE.
The group of Frank Fisher (vocals), Joe Goddard (production) and Dylan Clay (percussion), Behind You present the sonic amalgam of free-genre connoisseurs black midi, Show Me The Body’s hardcore roots, with the aplomb of MC Ride and Royal Headache’s Shogun.
Frenetic, impulsive, and fully charged, Behind You present another joyride through space and restraint on ‘Burning’. Toms and fills on the verge of bursting, vocals a breath away from feeling winded, a stop-start beat that keeps you guessing – ‘Burning’s 3-minute chug is a gut-punch. Their biggest inspirations: depravity, vertigo, and spoken word that rewards upon repeated listen. Unpredictable and considered, ‘Burning’ blends their mutual love for The Drones, Death Grips and Black Country, New Road, to create their own take on industrial hip hop and hardcore.
Of the video, the band share, “For the video, we returned to some of the bushland around where we grew up. It felt like there was something prophetic or tragic about staging an act of narcissism in these places which might not exist in 100 years. Watching the footage back we realised there was this irony about it which made the extravagance of the track feel like a farce – screaming into a cheap camera while bushwalkers pass by – so we leaned into that during the edit.”
Based out of Sydney’s Inner West, Behind You began as a duo in 2017 and released a slew of singles and EPs, performing to small crowds in dark venues around the city. Things changed in 2020 with the entrance of their live percussionist, and the release of their last single ‘More Like Fresh’ turned heads, drawing praise from the likes of triple j Unearthed and FBi Radio’s Independent Artist of the Week.
Behind You stand as one of Australia’s most exciting experimental bands right now, stay tuned for more.
