Brisbane alt-rock band, Patient Lounge, are following up their last epic track ‘Useless’ with hard-hitting, progressive-rock tune ‘Vivid Eyes’. The newest single, which boasts a range of different sounds in what is a seven-minute marathon listen, has been released today.
Since forming in 2019, Patient Lounge already have an impressive resume, supporting internationally acclaimed acts such as Haken, Pop Evil and Australian rock heavyweights Wolfmother.
The hard-hitting, dynamic musicians also managed to squeeze in Dead of Winter Festival, multiple interstate tours and kick 2020 in the teeth by finishing off the year showcasing at BIGSOUND 2020, a headline show as part of Brisbane’s epic Valley Fiesta and a sold-out single launch at the zoo.
Committed to staying as busy as possible, the boys launched into 2021 by releasing 9-minute prog journey ‘BEGDA’, then backing it up with a main stage performance directly supporting Wolf & Cub and COG as part of The Other Festival at Fortitude Music Hall Brisbane.
‘Vivid Eyes’ is Patient Lounge’s heaviest track yet, with stadium-sized riffs, pulsing grooves, rumbling low-end, a chorus that soars and a crushing crescendo, showing off the bands musicality and incredible song writing chops.
Amongst the oceanic swell of heavy guitars, shredding leads and machine gun fire drums, singer Zach Eather defiantly chants a call to arms, “They say you better march to the beat, never step out of line, but I’ll stand on two feet and I’ll play out of time… But a leash makes me bite, it’s a constant remind, they’ll fuck with your dreams, just open your eyes,” giving the listener a wake-up call to live their own lives, without exception.
And as the lead-singer goes on to suggest, the band believe that nobody should be allowed to determine one’s future, and that’s something which resonates heavily through the sweeping song of ‘Vivid Eyes’. Patient Lounge have saliently created their own sound, showing that they know their purpose and where they are headed. The boys will continue their steep upward curve, being open to changing for no one.
'Vivid Eyes' is out today on all major streaming platforms.
