The latest release from London metalcore trio Surrounded is a dynamic assembly of heavy-hitting metalcore verses with gritty vocals, chugging guitars, and drum breakdowns alongside hook-laden pop punk choruses reminiscent of 2000s emo radio smash hits. The dark versus light battle in this track is highly relatable. On one shoulder our inner demon painfully reminds us of all our past mistakes, and on the other shoulder an angelic fairy reminds us to look toward the future with hope. Ultimately, the chorus’s soaring melodic vocals firmly assert that we should simply let go of the past and learn to live “in the moment” - wise, essential advice for many of us.
