PREMIERE: LIFE ITSELF RELEASE NEW SINGLE “AWAY FROM IT ALL” FEATURING BRIAN WILLE OF CURRENTS (TRACK ANALYSIS)
New Jersey melodic hardcore band Life Itself are propagating the need for escapism and uprising with the release of their new single, “Away From It All”, premiering today exclusively on CaliberTV. The track features vocalist of Connecticut metalcore quintet Currents, Brian Wille.
Everyone can agree a majority of 2020’s internet discourse has revolved around topics like the pandemic and Black Lives Matter movement, and rightfully so, the video begins with footage reflecting how it’s become normality in the media we scroll through, share, and consume on a daily basis.
A chant of “hands up, don’t shoot”, a phrase that’s been vehemently uttered at many protests, prevails over television static and is the last thing you hear before the song begins. Whether or not you’re familiar with Life Itself, the hook “won’t let this get to me,” just might be enough to answer your question of why “Away From It All” held your attention.
“Away From It All” validates that relentless aggression best finds its place being channeled into music.
