The New South Wales natives will play the Oxford Art Factory Gallery Bar on Friday as they bring their new music to the masses.
Dreams was initially supposed to be a song about not being happy within your own skin, but as the writing process continued the track morphed and become something else.
“The song was initially written about the idea of someone not being totally happy within themselves, and wanting people to know that they are struggling but not being able to tell anyone,” explained the band.
But then as more ideas got mixed around the creative melting pot, Dreams become a song that had a little bit of this and a little bit of that – to the extent that Introvert aren’t really sure what it’s about anymore.
They concluded: “The final version, however, has a bunch of contributions from everyone in the band to the point in which we can’t nail down what it’s about. Go have a listen and make up your own dang mind!”
With rising chorus lines and swirling guitar, Introvert bring a Trophy Eye-ish vibe to their music. The Newcastle, NSW natives came through the scene in 2015 and made their name locally before support from Australian radio station triple j enabled them to play the Groovin’ The Moo festival in 2017.
That comparison to Trophy Eyes is no great shock and the band supported them following their GTM appearance, as well as taking to the stage with AFI, Hellions and Balance And Composure in 2017.
Introvert have since signed with UNFD and released their single December, played UNIFY Gathering in 2018 and continued making new material. Catch them in Sydney on Friday, with support from local bands Headstrong and Grenade Jumper.
