HALFWAIT – “MY PAST”
A SPILL EXCLUSIVE MUSIC PREMIERE
We are thrilled to announce the newest single from Australian alt-rock trio, Halfwait. Since 2010 they have been fusing elements of alternative, grunge and punk, while melding in modern influences to hone in on their own interpretation of the angsty nostalgic sound. With an EP, debut album and national tour under their belts, the band is revving up to release even more music into the ether.
Presenting, “My Past,” an arena filling anthem with a melodic guitar riff that pays homage to pop-punk greats such as Green Day, Blink 182 and The Offspring. Vocalist Jon Barca’s performance is imbued with pleading as he reconciles with mistakes from his past that haunted his present.
“The song was inspired by a past relationship of mine that was just getting started, but at the same time some troubles from my past were starting to catch up to me,” Jon explains. “When I was younger I made some bad decisions that I regret, and through dealing with court cases and all of the stress, I was struggling to process it all while trying to maintain some kind of normalcy in that relationship. Focusing on music with my best friend Chris, (drums/backing vocals) helped clear my mind, provided a positive outlet for me and kept me focused in maintaining a positive outlook on my life. My Past is the product of me moving forward from that point in my life, and never looking backwards.”
