Aussie alt rockers Shangrila have just released a brand spanking new track alongside an accompanying video. ‘Let You Down’ is the third single to come from their forthcoming EP, Analog Youth, out next week.
Written about the lingering effects of past relationship traumas, “Let You Down” uncovers the anxieties of entering into a new relationship and being subconsciously unable to let go of old trust and commitment issues. Vocalist Devyn Jupp highlights that “as the song progresses, it follows the relationship breaking down due to the person not allowing themselves to trust their partner from fear of history repeating. Once they are finally able realise the root of the problem is not from their present situation but from the ghost of the past relationship its already too late.”
“Let You Down” feeds itself into the story as a track that represents navigating new relationships and learning to let go of toxic ties from the past. Jupp adds, “I’ve always found it interesting how every experience we have throughout our lives shapes the person we grow into and once you know the details of people’s past life experiences and relationships you start to understand how they have become the person they are today.”
