Brisbane-based alt-rockers Wifecult have dropped their new single, Hold It Down. The release serves as the second taste of the bands forthcoming EP, Kindness In Clarity, An EP, due out this June.

Built atop blazing guitar work and impassioned percussion, the track delves deeper into the bands burgeoning sonic alt-rock realm and showcases their cohesion as an act. Hold It Down tackles the struggles of mental health, and offering help to a loved one feeling lost within their own mind.

“Depression is a vulnerable subject, at times cheapened and worn out by our sterile societal approach to handle it, or the overuse of ‘mental health’ vocabulary thrown around in daily conversations," vocalist Jarith Hughes shares.

"In its depths, this song is about watching a loved one truly struggle, lost in orbit, for a long time. Wishing I could pull them out of the dark, but still at times being there myself. It's trying to balance compassion and empathy with practical efforts to walk through it with them. It’s not the blind leading the blind. Sometimes it takes someone who knows, by your side to ride it out together.”

Wifecult will return to the stage later this month, supporting Ocean Grove on their Bored Of The City regional tour. The trio will take to the stage at Mo's Desert Clubhouse on the Gold Coast on April 27 and Solbar in Maroochydore the following evening. Tickets are on sale now!

Kindness In Clarity, An EP is out June 9. Listen to Hold It Down below.
