The Daily Chase are back to offer up one last anthemic single, “Light You Up” before the release of ‘The Colour Of Crisis‘ EP, out next Friday, April 8.
The heavy-hitting drum and bass-inspired tune tell the story of losing a friend to the spiral of depression. This song is about tragedy, forgiveness, and friends looking out for one another. The mainline from the chorus: “A thousand suns won’t light you up” translates to the fact that not even a thousand ‘good’ days can bring this person back from the darkness.
The music video is filmed and produced by Headstrong Films and echoes the sentiments of the track using a beautifully choreographed dance scene with dancers Carter and Rohan Cummins. Videographer and drummer for The Daily Chase, Ben Heidrich, explains: “With the video for ‘Light You Up’ we wanted a story that was a direct narrative to the lyrics, but still made you feel something. All dancing in the video was performed on set to the actual ‘Light You Up’ track, which made the dance scene completely authentic and in line with the song.“
Previous singles “Killjoy” and “Lotusland” teased a new sound for the band, influenced by drum and bass that builds on the band’s metal foundations. Both singles have earned plenty of triple j Unearthed love with a number of 4+ star reviews and play across multiple triple j shows. “Lotusland” featured on RAGE and was added to Unearthed rotation and Spotify picked up “Killjoy” for an add to their Homegrown + Heavy playlist.
The Daily Chase is a five-piece metal outfit from Adelaide comprised of vocalist Rory Cuthell, clean vocalist and guitarist Marc Patterson, drummer Ben Heidrich, guitarist Jake McDonald, and bassist Nic Wilks.
