Just days prior to their upcoming release of their next single ‘Limerence’ on June 11th, we are teaming up with djent metalcore pack INRESTROSPECT for a quick A-Z rundown of everything that fits they alley.
A sonic balance of harmonious noise focused on the sole intent of reflection, acknowledgement and ownership of the external anguish we, as a species, provide so unthoughtfully to the world around us. InRetrospect takes shape as an inter-county quintet who wish to share their perspective on the insatiable existential conquest that is the modern world. Designing sound that combats topics around the constant deterioration of mental health, pain & hardship in its more extreme form. The band utilise the anger and rawness, not only in the studio but in their live show to deliver a truly ground-shaking, thought-provoking performance.
Since late 2018, InRetrospect have grounded their footing in the music scene, playing shows throughout the UK to gain local support and landing themselves on the Satellite touring roster in late 2020. Releasing a small collective of singles from 2020 to date has earned the band radio play from BBC Introducing and gained the band DSP playlisting with Spotify and Apple music, surpassing 90,000+ streams on Spotify alone.
A – Alpha Wolf – One of Australia’s best bands.
