Emerging Woolongong outfit Brooklyn Comic have an interesting take on music, combining the sounds of emo with hardcore laced with rock sensibilities.
It is a unification that, on paper, should not work but somehow Brooklyn Comic have struck that delicate balance between two worlds and harnessed that energy into their music which is a reflection of the world they live and see around them.
The band's most recent single Charlie's Song details the repercussions addiction has in relationships and continues their common thread of exploring societal issues and mental health.
HEAVY sat down with Jayme, Steve and Emerson to talk more.
"The band has been around for just over a year," Jayme informed us. "I started writing music pretty heavily during the second lockdown, just as a means of aiding my mental despair. Basically, we have one mission statement and that's to raise awareness for mental health. And I like to scream into a microphone (laughs) and that kind of helps."
In the full interview, Brooklyn Comic tell us more about Charlie's Song, what they were going for musically with it, what the song is about and how it addresses modern problems, the film clip and what message they hope we take out of it, future music, upcoming shows and more.
