OUTLINE IN COLOR UNVEIL NEW SINGLE “POISON PRESCRIBED AS MEDICINE” + ANNOUNCE ‘IMPOSTER SYNDROME PT. 2’
Outline In Color toy with flashy, impressive production and their best song dynamics yet in their promising new track, “Poison Prescribed As Medicine”, which is taken from the band’s upcoming EP, ‘Imposter Syndrome Pt. 2’.
Speaking on the new track, the band said-
“PPAM is inspired in part by the seemingly ever-growing opioid crisis that is taking too many people too early. Whether you have experienced it personally or lost someone close to you, I think anyone can relate to the feelings of loss in this song. The chorus line “What a beautiful day to be broken” describes how you can wake up with a thousand reasons to be happy everyday, but somehow the grip of the negative in our life always seems to overshadow. In these times especially, we need to be kind to each-other. You never know what the person next to you is going through on the inside.”
A harrowing description of opioid addiction with grim detailings of what getting hooked on a dangerous drug can do to a person, “Poison Prescribed As Medicine” wraps its message in a catchy, full production. The verses switch from chill and quiet to beautiful and uplifting before an upbeat alternative rock-styled chorus gives way to the sound of the track dropping out and rushing back in for a massive breakdown.
These elements will be familiar and welcome to Outline In Color’s loyal fans while simultaneously offering a new approach to the structuring of the track. Accompanying the release of “Poison Prescribed As Medicine” is a graphic music video that accurately depicts how addiction to opioids can destroy a person from the inside out. The band felt it was important to leave no details spared.
‘Imposter Syndrome Pt. 2’ will be released on Friday, April 22nd (pre-orders available here). Stream the video for “Poison Prescribed As Medicine” now below.
