Energized with emotional and heartfelt lyrics, with the beasts of metal and hardcore combined, the new single from newcomers Stand Alone is a real belter and one to take notice of.
Keen to produce a unique sound, taking influences from all genres of music stretching from the angst and energy of hardcore too poet indie lyrics, Short Sighted is a prime example of what is to come from the 5-piece London band. Using music as a release to talk about past experience and to reflect, Short Sighted talks about broken homes, using the video to tell a story of a day in the life of a young dead beat dad, who because of his selfish attitude and approach to life forgets to pick up his child on his day of custody.
Short Sighted is the debut single from the Londoners, and the first single from their self-titled EP, Stand Alone, Buy short sighted from iTunes now.
