Melbourne five-piece LOSER return with new single Upside Down today. The track is their first release since dropping their debut album in February, Mindless Joy, which has since been nominated for the coveted Australian Music Prize.
The song is an examination of the chaos of the world, juxtaposing the theme of introspective exploration of mental health present on their debut album. After their plans for 2020 were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, brothers Tim and Will Maxwell built a new home studio in their parents garage and began working on new music. One of the results was Upside Down, which saw the band team up with ARIA award winning mixing engineer Anton Hagop (Silverchair, Powderfinger, Missy Higgins, Birds of Tokyo).
"'Upside Down' is about your own personal response to the state of the world. You can either let it consume you, or you can find safety within yourself and watch as the chaos ensues... I guess this is my first political song, I don’t really like to write that way usually but seeing all the news that was shoved down our throats at the time and just being left there to deal with it made me angry," Tim Maxwell shares.
Upside Down is out now! Listen to the track below.
