Not backward about coming forward, Central Coast alternative/metal outfit Reliqa are today releasing their brand new single “Hangman”. A hard-out track that opens on a piano riff, then doesn’t mess around getting to the point, Reliqa are dropping this track as the second taste of their forthcoming EP Eventide, which will see its release on Friday November 9 in iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music and all good online stores and streaming outlets.
Reliqa’s new single, “Hangman”, is a foreboding caution, and an anthem of tragedy. It opens the door to a story that Reliqa are carefully crafting. “Hangman” is available today in Spotify and can be streamed below. Their upcoming eight-track sophomore EP, Eventide ushers in a number of experiments in style. The leading single “Earthbound” was a solemn slow burn, not quite heavy, and not quite a ballad. This track as well as a number of others on ‘Eventide’ bridge gaps between heavy music and other genres, including hip hop, jazz, electronic, and orchestral.
Reliqa is the four piece alternative metal band that has been on the Central Coast, NSW scene for a year now. Their debut EP Afterlight was released at the beginning of 2018 and marked much of the building blocks of their style and sound – blending Monique Pym’s powerhouse vocals vocals with aggressive riffage. Reliqa’s drive and ambition has already seen them play alongside legends Far Away Stables, Liberties and Grim Indiana.
