Adelaide-based rock outfit Alt. are back with their sophomore single, the dark and addictive “Chasing Safety” premiering today on Dreambound. Alt. have left just enough time between for their Adelaide following to get acquainted before unleashing the brand new track live on The Hyperdaze Tour alongside Void Of Vision and Diamond Construct on February 28.
“Chasing Safety” is produced by Callan Orr (Dream On Dreamer) at Avalanche Studios and is written by the trifecta of absolute musical talent, Chris Lalic (Windwaker), Zach Britt (Young Lions) and Alt. themselves. Similar to previous single “Insubordinate“, the track flaunts a massively addictive riff and a sound not unlike rock lords, Deftones. The track is about having to watch from the outside when someone you care about is stuck in an awful situation and you feel desperate to rescue them.
“Someone very dear to me was in an abusive relationship and feeling very helpless, lost, and alone and I was so moved to hear about what she was going through.” explains vocalist Daniel Richards. “I’m so grateful that she had the strength to open up and allow me to have a hand in helping her get out of that situation and into a happier, safer life.“
“The message in chasing safety is that no matter how hopeless a situation feels, there will always be someone to support you and care about keeping you out of harm. I hope we can all get through the fear of reaching out and accept help when we don’t feel safe.“
