U.K. melodic hardcore outfit Faultlines have debuted a music video for their new single “Breathe”. The group said of the track:
“We always like to make my lyrics about personal experiences.Whether that be myself or another band member. I feel this is the best way to develop a strong attachment to the song and for the writing to translate across to the listener. With ‘Breathe’ that is exactly what we’ve tried to achieve. This single had input from all five members due to the theme being about something we’ve all experienced multiple times. Something or someone pulling you down, stopping you achieving your goals and the subsequent need to eradicate it/them from your life.
Though this is the case, we tried to keep the lyrics as open and ambiguous as possible, in order for it to be relatable to the listener in any way they see fit. We were all in agreement that we need to keep the listener guessing and remain subtle in our words. A formula that we intend to keep working on for future material.
We found the best structure was starting with this issue and working through the song until it reached a resolution. The chorus however will always remain the main focus and summary of the topic. I’d rather all my lyrics be somewhat positive, thinking of the listeners perception once more, showing that there are always solutions to situations and encourage positive thinking.”
