Pop-punk quintet Carrington are making Perth’s music scene proud with every release, this time it’s with their new music video for ‘Reverse’.

‘Reverse’ stares down the barrel of 2020 frustration, hinting that the difficult periods of life that we all go through are exacerbated amid a global pandemic that has crippled the Australian music industry and highlighted many other important issues.

Carrington frontman Emmett Carroll says of the song:

“Reverse is about how we all go through difficult periods of life, especially with the added stress 2020 has inflicted. The pressure that home-life has been put under is really evident, and this song is the bands reflection on the emotions many people will (or have) turned to.”

The track and video clip were created in true Carrington style, utilising the skills of the band members for a DIY approach that paid dividends. The track was produced, engineered, mixed and mastered by frontman Emmett Carroll at E.C Audio, and the clip itself was filmed and edited by guitarist Jordan King.

‘Reverse’ lyrics:

Hoping that it’s healing
Staring down the ceiling
Think that it’s revealing
I don’t have to shift with
Flowers in the west wind
Your swimming in my head

Assert myself
Reset rehearse
About to risk a night to slightly worse judgment

React respond
Thinking slow but talking quick it’s passive slick
Bleeding black and blue inside my head, I should have said
I don’t repeat myself when you left me too
Reverse the words you say to revert to truth
I’m barely ready
Always heavy
Feeling that I can’t place your words
Resisting the urge to turn face and run

Saying your sorry for how that I feel is enough (At least I’m in your bed, resist you in my head)

I don’t sleep well with the thought of us leaving at ends
I need you toe to toe laying with me
I don’t know this you

I don’t repeat myself when you left me too
Reverse the words you say to revert to truth
I’m barely ready
Always heavy
Feeling that I can’t place your words
Resisting the urge to turn face and run
