Basement Revolver: Knocking

Taking things to a more intimate and personal level, Hamilton, Ontario indie rock trio, Basement Revolver, have shared another track off their anticipated debut full length, Heavy Eyes.

Songwriter and vocalist, Chrisy Hurn offers more insight about Knocking and why it means so much to her: "Knocking is probably the heaviest song on the album for me, personally. I often still can’t sing it without crying. I wrote it after writing my family a long letter that came clean about my past, and about some of the shit that I have been through. Hard things that left me feeling shameful, or like a disappointment to them – things that made me feel like I wasn’t the 'good Christian woman' that they had hoped I would one day become. The letter came after a few years of hardcore wrestling and rebelling against what I believed in response to a traumatic event in my life. I got to a point where I didn’t recognize myself, or all the anger that I was holding inside. I basically kept telling myself that I was garbage, broken, unlovable, used and a whole other slur of things."

With the band's popularity constantly on the rise, Basement Revolver keep on delivering different facets of their creativity, all equally impressive, as this more toned down in sound and esoteric piece follows the gaze-y Baby which was revealed last month.

Heavy Eyes comes out August 24th, 2018 from Sonic Unyon and Fear of Missing Out.
