Track: Swimsuit Issue unleash dynamic single ‘Addict’ – a brutal and cathartic portraiture of dependence

‘Addict’, the new single by Australian band Swimsuit Issue has a dynamic quiet/loud ethic popularised by the Pixies, mixing a reverb-soaked dreamy reflective verse with an angry blast of thundering guitars in the chorus.

The unashamedly and very welcomed Australian diction shines through before the gut-wrenching chorus kicks in.

A song about, as the title suggests, the pain of addiction, this is visceral raw and brutal music – edgy and pained. The arrangement of the song reflecting the ebbs and flows of addiction – the dreamy pleasures of a hit and the pain and torture of withdrawal.

It’s a visceral and cathartic joy:

Swimsuit Issue hail from Queensland and the single is now available through all the usual streaming site online. You can also catch the band next week – details below:
