Dynamic psych-rockers Baskervillain have returned from their extended hiatus to release their introspective new single Bitter Pink; a guitar lead cruise through personal frustrations, self doubt and eventual change.
To celebrate the release of Bitter Pink, Baskervillain will be hitting the road with seven dates across the East Coast including shows in Brisbane, Port Macquarie, Newcastle,Toowoomba, Sydney, Melbourne and Warrnambool.
The track is an ode to the bittersweet balancing act of life, reflective of the shifting challenges the band members have faced over their extended hiatus.
“Bitter Pink reflects feelings of frustration and being down on your own reality,wanting to make something better for yourself but instead drowning out the dullness with old habits. The song is intended to echo how we frustrate ourselvesand agonise over the sometimes bitter realities of our choices,” said vocalist, Tom Spurgin.
“Some of the lyrics portray the tendency to try to avoid or escape the dreary anddepressing aspect of daily life through indulging our superficial desires, despite how this often becomes unhealthy or self-destructive,” said drummer, Lachlan Giddings.
The first self-produced release for the band Bitter Pink was unique challenge for bassist Jack McKenzie who took up mixing and recording duties with collaborators Matt Luffand Daniel Grimma (Astro Travellers & Twin Haus).
