THE THROWAWAY SCENE SHARE NEW SINGLE ‘FAKE DEATH’
Denial; pretending the loss does not exist. Disengaging with everything, all at once.
Sheffield emo rock outfit, The Throwaway Scene have released their brand new single ‘Fake Death’. Trapped in a conversation where aid is offered but met with stiff resistance, "Fake Death" begins to explore the Kübler-Ross five stages of grief model.
With the first stage denial, The Throwaway Scene presents an inner monologue from their character, Ross, as he replays a defiant conversation with Kübler, wherein she offers understanding of a traumatic event.
“This track is a slight departure from my previous lyrical stylings/choices with a view of exploring narrative that was less self-centered. I think vocally it just “feels” different too ‘cos the delivery of the lines is a lot more direct than before. Due to life’s unfortunate timing we were recording vocals on the day we found out a family member had passed so Fake Death will always be quite a personal song.” - Vocalist, Oliver.
