Sydney’s post hardcore act INERTIA share new track & video “Reminisce”, ft. Lizi Blanco

Australian post hardcore / melodic metalcore act INERTIA are stepping it up yet again with the release of their brand new single “Reminisce” featuring The Beautiful Monument’s Lizi Blanco. “Reminisce” is the second to drop from upcoming ‘Connexion’ EP – due out Friday April 17!

Produced, mixed and mastered by Inertia’s resident audio engineer and guitarist Mark Williamson at Keywork Audio (After Touch, Far Away Stables, Closure) and premiering at Blunt Magazine yesterday, “Reminisce” continues with the overall EP theme of human connection and the variations experienced in a lifetime.

“Reminisce” dives into a failed relationship and the melancholic thoughts and feelings that still linger after the dust has settled.

Vocalist Julian Latouche explores personal experience in the track and explains his inspiration:

“I wanted to write a break-up song that wasn’t spiteful or full of hate because that’s not real and it’s not what I experienced from the somewhat healthy relationship I had. I read all the conversations we had and tried to get the perspective from the both of us and how we we’re coping with it.”

Inertia have been creeping towards the forefront of Australia’s heavy community over the last few months and have experimented with a new sound for the upcoming release:

“We wanted to explore more of our musical genre diversity within the band and take influence from other artists that weren’t in the same genre as us” says Latouche. “We messed around with song structures and melodies that were new and exciting to us and that’s what ultimately lead to the double chorus, funk style guitars and the pop inspired scotch snap vocal hook.”

“Reminisce” lyrics:

Lately i’ve been wondering
Bout where you’ve been
And everything that you’d say to me
When i was in the dark and struggling
Look how far we’ve come

Do you think of me when
You’re chasing the dreams that keep you awake
Does it help you sleep
Knowing that there’s something left of me inside of you

Lately i’ve been wondering
If you’re missin’ me
Causing I’m moving on and I’m doing fine
But every now and then you come across my mind
Can we make this right?

If it went another way
I could’ve been the one to make you see
But close to you is far away
I could’ve been the one who set you free

If i knew then what i could do
I wouldn’t let myself get closer to you
Why did you keep the worst of me alive
Left here to keep you floating

Start a fire, ignite the flame
Feel the heat as we disintegrate
Start a fire, ignite the flame
Burn it all cause I’m over it

Lately i’ve been wondering
Bout where you’ve been
And if you think of me when
You’re chasing the dreams that keep you awake
Does it help you sleep
Knowing that there’s something left of me inside of you
I’m out of sight, out of your mind
Just my ghost is left to haunt you now
Take a breath and just let the words come to you
