downcast – a weight that i can’t stand

Today’s track of the day comes from downcast with their single a weight that i can’t stand!

We’re loving downcast‘s single a weight that i can’t stand!

Frontman Liam Edwards said: “This is one of the poppier songs on the record. We loved the idea of doing a video with a dark theme for it and creating an interesting contrast between the sound and the visuals.

“The song itself, with the benefit of hindsight, reflects on a bad situation in my life. It describes my realisation of what someone’s true intentions were and their actions being calculated, as well as the feeling of having wasted time and the process of improving my mental health. I compare myself to how I was feeling at the time of writing songs prior to these events, back when we first started downcast, and how I’ve come a long way since then, despite there being some ups and downs in between.”
