Following on from the release of their 2017 EP which featured exalted single ‘Love Your Man’ Donnrumma have well and truly departed from their previous roots sound. The Adelaide trio come out swinging with the supercharged indie single ‘Alien’.
Full of angst and desperation, this song is fueled by lyrics of a lonely soul desperate to be understood in the world today stand strong against distorted guitars and crashing drums: “My friends don’t know, friends don’t know what I’m all about, I’m just an alien living in your fakeness ”.
There’s no denying lead singer and captivating vocalist Louis Donnarumma’s powerful and pained vocals in this track, truly displaying the driving musical force of this band and reflective of the harrowing emotions of the record.
It’s vulnerable and it’s authentic – everything we love about adolescent fury.
Catch them at Bar Open Melbourne on Thursday April 12 with supports from Creature Fear & Abbey Howlett. Tickets available here and they are an absolute steal. Go on, you know you want to.
