Aussie duo EGOISM are back with a new banger, Lonely But Not Alone. Made up of Scout Eastment and Olive Rush, the track is all about feeling seperate from one another, even when you're not alone.
The release arrives alongside an official music video, directed by Nick Mckk, and serves as the first taste of new music from EGOISM since the release of their 2020 EP, On Our Minds.
We asked the duo to give us their top five tracks that make them feel like they're not alone, and they've delivered some songs to dance to, some to cry to, and some that will unleash your inner emo.
CHARLI XCX - VROOM VROOM
Purely because this song gets me in such a party mood that it’s impossible to feel lonely.
Opposite vibe, the loneliness in this song is crushing I guess it’s somewhat comforting to know someone else is going through it?
BABYGIRL - SOFT
This is such a sweet song, I love the intimacy
ALLDAY - IN MOTION
An Australian classic. I relate to the feeling of observing someone throwing their life away.
MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE - WELCOME TO THE BLACK PARADE
How could you feel lonely when there’s literally a song inviting you to join a parade of undead emos?
