A sonic balance of harmonious noise focused on the sole intent of reflection, acknowledgement and ownership of the external anguish we, as a species, provide so carelessly to the world around us. InRetrospect takes shape as an inter-county quintet who wish to share their perspective on the insatiable existential conquest that is the modern world. Designing sound that combats topics around the constant deterioration of mental health, pain & hardship in its more extreme form. The band utilise the anger and rawness, not only in the studio but in their live show to deliver a truly ground-shaking, thought-provoking performance.
Since late 2018, InRetrospect have grounded their footing in the music scene, playing shows throughout the UK. Releasing a small collective of singles from 2020 to date has earned the band radio play from BBC Introducing, Amazing Radio, Distortion Radio, ARFM, Kerrang Radio and more, and gained the band DSP playlisting with Spotify, Amazon Music, Deezer, Pandora and Apple music, surpassing 100,000+ streams on Spotify alone.
Inretrospect release their next single “My Last Breath” right now across all DSPs. The track is accompanied by a visualiser and showcases the band at their very darkest, both sonically and lyrically. The band have already had support from the likes of Heavy Mag, GigRadar and more, and have a busy tour schedule upcoming with bands such as Spoiler, Tyrants and Majin as well as playing Burn It Down Festival.
Speaking about “My Last Breath”, singer Nathan Biddles says:
Greavement, isolation and suffocation. “My Last Breath” is a plea to our audience and wider, encouraging the uprising against abusive behaviour, to take a stand against those who make day to day living unbearable. Out-lining the manipulating behaviour in this track with the use of metaphorical drowning themes throughout, “My Last Breath” is a search party looking to reach out and connect with anyone suffering in these circumstances. As a band we decided that this track didn’t need to be overly complicated, it’s carrying an important and crucial message in my vocals, so we harnessed the raw emotion behind the topic and made a conscious decision to write and design something power, cutting and sharp to accompany. Limitations are something we aimed to avoid completely with this track and the result is a testimony to our writing process. “My Last Breath” is a beacon, a light in the dark, you’re not alone.
