Premiere: VOIID - Lexapro

Check out the catchy new single and video from Meanjin/Brisbane alt-rockers before it drops everywhere tomorrow

With three EPs to their name and having shared stages with the likes of Grinspoon, Amyl & The Sniffers, Clowns, Cosmic Psychos, DZ Deathrays, WAAX and many more, it would seem like the time for alt-punk-rock four-piece VOIID to release an album may be edging near… which today we get the first taste of in the form of new single and video Lexapro, premiering on Pilerats ahead of its August 12 release. 

A nostalgic and chaotically harmonious cut of 90s leaning alt rock goodness, Lexapro pairs clean tremolo guitar lines with big distorted riffs and an undeniable anthemic chorus with vocal powerhouse Anji Greenwood’s irresistible delivery the sonic cherry on top.

Of the single the band explain, “Lexapro is a huge rant about coming to terms with the realisation of what place women hold in the world, struggling with the intricacies of your mental health and the frustration that comes with wanting to open up but fearing if people will listen. It’s about feeling forever unheard, forever less than, forever inadequate”.

Lexapro comes with an appropriately fun and trippy video, channelling a little bit of Black Hole Sun by Soundgarden vibes across it’s fever dream style visuals and rotating scenes that are sure to remain in your mind long after the video finishes.

Check it out and keep your eyes and ears peeled for news on VOIID's debut album set for release next year.
