Melbourne four-piece Figures have dropped a savage new cut from their upcoming debut album Operating in Unsafe Mode, which will be out soon on July 17!
Titled 'Someone Uninvited', the new track combines a dirty and raw pulse with melodic prog sensibilities which sounds like if Every Time I Die and Karnivool had an angry baby, and we love it.
The new song was actually written back during the Australian Equal Rights Marriage plebiscite in 2017, of which vocalist Mark Tronson says:
"Someone Uninvited was a much pulsier and punky song than we had ever written prior, but it was instantly a favourite to both the band and those closest to us, which is why we wanted it to be a single.
The message in the lyrics - that of standing up to oppression and dehumanisation - are unfortunately always relevant, even more so in 2020. For the video, we felt that the lyrics spoke for themselves and, rather than taking a narrative route, went for something that visually captures the overall sonic vibe of the record."
Check out the song with the visually-striking accompanying video below:
