JUNCTION 28 REVEALS VIDEO FOR BRAND NEW, MESMERIC NEW SINGLE “EDGE OF HATRED”!
Following from the previous releases (the zestful “Suffocate” and the charging “Don’t Say”) of the band’s most recent, debut EP – “Before You Drown” – alternative outfit Junction 28 now presents video for the immersive “Edge Of Hatred”! Showcasing a softer and more melodic approach, the track brings together dense, interwoven layers of synthesizers, pianos, and clean guitars into an evocative canvas of sound. This allows the listener to connect to the heightened emotionality of the song, before the track leads inevitably to an explosive crescendo. Compared to the band’s previous releases, “Edge Of Hatred” is very much a singular song, as the achieved atmosphere is very soft and delicate, which results in a complex and emotional outcome, with the song covering many specific topics, such as trauma and people’s darkest thoughts.
Sharing thoughts about the influence behind “Edge Of Hatred”, Junction 28 collectively states: “Telling a tale both deeply personal and broadly universal, “Edge Of Hatred” delves into the ways trauma shapes and contorts our perceptions, the titular refrain refiring to a boundary that can never be uncrossed, our darker personas that tempt even the best of us in our worst moments. In the end the song gives no clear resolution, as with the characters portrayed within the lyrics, we all have to make our own choices for better or for worse”.
