I’ve heard PETSEMATARY’s name around before – they’ve played shows with Peaness and Ghum. They’re building a rising audience in the indiepop community, and judging by their new single ‘Get Away With It’, I can see why.
‘Get Away With It’ is a gorgeous slice of indie-pop. Its shimmering guitars and emotional vocal delivery tug at the heartstrings. The lyrics are about mental health and how it affects your friends and family. There’s a feeling of anguish in the chorus: “Get away, get away.” As someone who suffers from anxiety and mental health, this song means a lot to me and the emotional vocal delivery really brings out the raw feelings.
I am very excited about what PETSEMATARY are going to do in the future, because ‘Get Away With It’ is one of the best songs I’ve heard this year. I think, especially with a lot of people in lockdown, it will resonate with them strongly.
