Newcastle punks Introvert have announced their highly-anticipated EP Mending Breaking, ( out Friday, February 21 ) along with releasing the title track.
Capturing the rollercoaster of emotions that comes with trying to deal with your demons, Mending Breaking spans six tracks of alt-rock, punk and heavy. Introvert vocalist Audie Franks explains that the release hones in on the idea of self-loathing, and the feeling of knowing you’re in a rut and need to get out.
“Sometimes you get in those spaces and you want others to help you, but you also want to be able to do it yourself, the title came about because of the idea of someone trying to fix themselves and going through cycles of mending and then breaking again. If you listen to the EP from start to finish it actually goes around in that circle of mending and breaking.”
Arguably capturing the idea of this roller coaster in full is the EP’s title track “Mending Breaking.” Franks explains that it stands on the heavier side of all their work, and that searing heaviness seizes the aggravation of trying over and over to piece yourself together (hear the line: “I’m struggling with everything, I always let myself down with this self-doubt, I have to pull myself out of this self doubt“)
