Perth pop punk / post hardcore outfit Nautical Mile are showing us the meaning of betrayal and how it feels to be let down in new track “Regicide”.
It is the final single release before the band gets to work on a new album and, is a departure from the more conventional pop-punk they’re known for doing. The pop-punk banger was engineered and produced by Tristan Sturmer of Sumo Sound Studios in Perth, with mastering by George Georgiadis of Little Wing Production, and is some of the bands most mature songwriting to date.
Brodi Owen, lead singer for the band, says “The title ‘Regicide’ comes from the act of killing a monarch; the betrayer is wanting to be someone’s queen and putting themselves on a pedestal, when in reality they’re just as likely to stab you in the back. The title can either be interpreted as this betrayal of the “king” or the act of killing the relationship (and thus the “queen”) and moving on. The lyrics describe the almost cyclical nature of relationships like this, the back and forth of constantly trying to please someone only to be disappointed, and the process of coming to terms with this and breaking free of the toxic environment.”
The new Nautical Mile single “Regicide” will be available this Friday on all digital and streaming platforms. Tickets for their Australian tour will also go on sale this Friday!
