Sydney-based screaming rap-rock-electro-pop mutants RedHook today unleash their brand-new single, ‘Paralysed’ – produced by Stevie Knight (Trophy Eyes, Stand Atlantic) and Dave Petrovic (Northlane, Tonight Alive) and mixed by Andrew Wade (A Day To Remember, The Ghost Inside).
‘Paralysed’ sees the band showcase their more melodic side, twisting their signature cocktail of EDM-influenced production and psychotic riffage with huge dark pop vocals, as singer Emmy Mack turns her aggression inward.
“Anyone who’s ever struggled with their mental health will understand the feeling that this song is about, probably all too well,” Mack explains.
“It shines an ugly but very real spotlight on those dark periods when depression and anxiety is crushing you – and inside you’re just screaming at yourself to snap out of it and get on with business, but physically – you just can’t. It’s like you’re incapacitated, you can’t even move. You’re fighting as hard as you can but you feel paralysed.”
After opening up the main stage at the inaugural Good Things Festival in Sydney in December, RedHook are now smashing into 2019, completing a national tour with The Faim, announcing their debut international trek to play the 2019 instalment of Download UK alongside giants like Slipknot, Tool and Die Antwoord and currently touring nationally supporting Hands Like Houses, Ocean Grove and Endless Heights.
