Drown This City Reveal Music Video For “Stay Broken”

Melbourne, Australia metal band Drown This City have revealed their new music video recently. You can watch the official music video for their song “Stay Broken” below. The song is taken from the band’s latest EP Alpha // Survivor which was released via UNFD.

Vocalist Alex Reade commented:

Basically I’m speaking to myself. I’m saying, ‘I can bury this pain for you inside, and you’ll fall, and you’ll stay broken, or I can carry this pain and help you heal and you can soar and rise and embrace your strength as an alpha.’ 

The main hook in the lyrics – ‘Alpha, realise your power’ – I think really encapsulates the whole message of the EP and what we believe in. Turn your fight on, don’t be afraid of your own power, your own ability to heal and be strong and be above everyone else, even if it’s lonely up there – it’s where you belong.

She added:

It allows us to further explore our own inner darkness physically and theatrically through what we wear, how we move, in a way we don’t normally in real life. We’ve almost got a post-apocalyptic vibe with a touch of steam punk, bondage to represent dominance and submission, power and struggle… In reality we are light-hearted and easy going, so the film clip allows us to show the turbulence and destruction deep within us also.
