It’s always a happy Friday when we’re discovering cool new tracks!
This time it’s from Western Sydney-based alt rockers Hurst who have their new grunge anthem, ‘Purple & Green’. The super heavy track is infused with all the best bits of punk rock with headbanging vibes from start to finish.
In true DIY punk rock fashion, ‘Purple & Green’ was self-produced and self-recorded. In fact, the recording took place in the bedroom of Nick, the drummer’s house!
Lyrically, the gritty alt rock track welcomes you inside the head of lead singer and rhythm guitarist, Ana Veira.
“I admit that I’m very much among the first out there to hide my problems and struggles with mental health. And there’s this war between my heart and head over how I should live my life. The older I get, the more I understand that saving face is unsustainable. Fact is, I’m vulnerable, I’m an unfinished work and just because things don’t line up or make sense, doesn’t mean they never will,” she says.
“I hope this song can mean something to you as it does to me. I hope it can help you project whatever deep emotions and thoughts are percolating in you. I hope it can open doors to be more of who you really are.”
It’s the perfect soundtrack to walking out of work on a Friday that’s for sure.
This will be the band’s third single release in the lead-up to their forthcoming second EP, ‘Sad Face’, due to be dropped later this month (June 29). Check it out below.
