MUSIC NEWS: RedHook And Yours Truly Team Up On ‘Imposter’
RedHook and Yours Truly have teamed up to release their new single Imposter, taken from RedHook’s forthcoming debut album Postcard From A Living Hell.
There’s no head-fuck quite like discovering that the person you love most, and who you think you know better than anyone else, has been lying to you and manipulating you the entire time. At first, it feels like death, you grieve for the person you loved as if they’ve died, and yet somehow they still exist.” explains RedHook’s Emmy Mack. “It’s almost as if some kind of evil, alien life force has taken up residence inside their body and is walking around wearing their skin. Eventually, it causes you to question your own sanity; you question whether that person who meant so much to you ever really existed at all.”
Discussing the collaboration with fellow Australian heavy-metaller Mikaila Delgado, Mack adds, “This song was already so special to me and one of my absolute favourites off the record. We approached Mikaila to be involved because we love Yours Truly so much and thought her voice would sound amazing on the track. But what I didn’t realise was that she’d actually been going through an eerily similar situation to mine in her own personal life. We trauma-bonded a lot during the process of putting ‘Imposter’ together and the extra vocal parts and lyrics that Mikaila added still give me goosebumps every time! She took this song to a whole new dimension and I’m so grateful to her for it. This is our joint break-up anthem and we hope it empowers other people who’ve been through similar nightmarish bullshit to stay strong.”
Like what you hear? Imposter is out now, whilst Postcard From A Living Hell is set for release on 21st April 2023, available to pre-order now.
