Sydney Pop-Punkers, A Swift Farewell, have released their latest single, Out In The Storm which marks the band’s poignant debut for the year. This is the band’s second self produced track by Sarah Bonnet and co-written by Sam Thomlinson (Clay J Gladstone, Bad Pony, Introspects).

Out In The Storm is a tactful combination of heartbreaking lyrics and upbeat riffs. The enthralling guitars pull you in from the very first note, complemented by a vocal line that already addresses some of the strongest themes of the song: “I’d run away from my brain if I could.” Following a short and sweet electronic break for the pre-chorus, the hook kicks in, catchier than ever. As a whole, the anthemic melodies will stay stuck in your head for days while the powerful drums performance will make you want to jump up and down the whole way through the song.

The band talk about the meaning behind Out In The Storm: “Out In The Storm encapsulates the fear of having pushed someone away so far that they’ll never come back. The feeling you get when someone tells you they need to go out for a walk when you just had an argument and it’s midnight and storming outside. This song is a mix of emo, alt, pop, and rock elements destined to make you cry and mosh at the same time”.

To celebrate the release, the band will be supporting Clay J Gladstone in March, and playing BONEZ Queer Party across the East Coast of Australia with The Beautiful Monument in April. This continues on from having recently travelled across Australia supporting Alt. on their ‘The Violence In Silence Tour,’ and shared the stage with local heroes such as Yours Truly, Hands Like Houses, Bloom, Besties and Bellwether.

Previous releases have been widely embraced by Spotify, Apple Music, triple j, triple j Unearthed and Australian community radio. They’ve also received online support from Alternative Press (USA), Blunt Magazine, Hysteria Magazine, Music Feeds, Wall of Sound, Backseat Mafia (UK) and Something You Said.
