PREMIERE: IN REAL LIFE
Written by Mark Rabjohns
Look around. The weather is crisp, our coats are on and our breath is visible. We are all yearning for a companion. Friends, we are in the belly of a powerful beast. Welcome to handcuff season.
Handcuff Season also happens to be the name of the powerful debut single of Brisbane four-piece In Real Life.
Drawing inspiration from the often-overlooked issues faced by every day people, front man Alex once told me that “[He’ll] stop shouting when society starts talking”. The sound itself bears resemblances to 90s emo and on first listening to the song it feels as though you are being invited into a very personal and fragile part of Alex’s world.
Catch In Real Life at our Against the Grain Festival in August.
