Something For Kate have released a new single, titled 'Waste Our Breath'.
A few months removed from their first release in eight years, Something For Kate fans have more good news to unpack.
The Australian three-piece – Paul Dempsey Clint Hyndman and Stephanie Ashworth – have unveiled the second single, 'Waste Our Breath', from their forthcoming studio album, due for release later this year. "'Waste Our Breath' is a song about trying to find an empty space," Paul says.
"It's about privacy and surveillance and social media and oxygen and George Orwell, and how we're all on TV now."
The song was recorded in Byron Bay by American rock heavyweight Nick DiDia (Powderfinger, Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen), and mixed in Toronto by Canadian pop-electro auteur Howie Beck (Feist, Hayden).
The band have also released an accompanying music video, which was directed by Alex Badham and was shot on location at the hauntingly beautiful Palais Theatre in Melbourne.
"The eerie silence of the theatre perfectly reflected the song's themes of futility, about throwing all your energy at something knowing that it will get you nowhere," the band says. "So what better way to sum that up by performing to 3,000 empty seats?"
