Australian music royalty, Something For Kate have blessed us with a new single this morning. ‘Waste Our Breath’ is the second single from their forthcoming album and it comes along with a video too.
‘Waste Our Breath’ is a soaring single full of that special Something For Kate pop rock sound and their signature cutting lyrics. Plus, the confetti and streamer-filled film clip is fun AF, which is kind of an oxymoron…
“The eerie silence of the theatre perfectly reflected the song’s themes of futility – about throwing all your energy at something knowing that it will get you nowhere – so what better way to sum that up by performing to 3000 empty seats?” said the band on the Alex Badham-directed clip, filmed in Melbourne’s Palais Theatre.
“‘Waste Our Breath’ is a song about trying to find an empty space. It’s about privacy and surveillance and social media and oxygen and George Orwell and how we’re all on TV now,” says frontman Paul Dempsey.
‘Waste Our Breath’ follows up ‘Situation Room’, Something For Kate’s first new single in eight years.
