Adelaide metalcore five-piece Mauvais have dropped a furious new single in the form of 'I Feel Nothing', which really primes the band as a leading force to be reckoned with in Australia's heavy scene.
As the song's title might suggest, it comes from a personal place for vocalist Jaycob Page, who says:
"I Feel Nothing to me is almost self criticism, an inability to care enough about the right things at the right times and a reflection on mistakes I've made in life. A sense of feeling that I am trapped the way I am and not being able to change the past - being defined by the past and feeling like i once almost crossed a line at a point in time that I couldn’t come back from at all."
"The reference to the Devil’s snare in the lyrics is a Harry Potter reference - it's a plant that will strangle you quickly if you struggle - leading it to kill you - which references the feeling of no escape from my anxiety and depression."
Have a watch of the official video below:
Mauvais have been carving out a reputable name for themselves since forming in late 2017, releasing one split single and one EP in 2018 to land support slots alongside international heavyweights Stray From The Path (US), Kublai Khan (US), along with some of Australia's biggest acts including Alpha Wolf and Deez Nuts.
Definitely worth keeping your eye on these guys!
