LAKE ACACIA Address Culture of Silence Surrounding Mental Health Problems On New Single

26th April 2019

Oxford newcomers LAKE ACACIA have released a brand new video for ‘Any Day Now’—the latest single to be taken from their forthcoming new EP Broken Circuits, set for release on 3rd June 2019.

Following lead track ‘Desynthed’, ‘Any Day Now’ is the second single to be taken from the EP, and sees the band in their highest gear to date, leaping between clean guitars and frantic drums to an uplifting chorus featuring the band’s impressive three-part harmonies, giving an intentionally polarised feel to the track which mimics the emotionally-charged lyrics.

The single is a head-on look at the culture of silence that can often surround those suffering with mental health problems, and the spiral of loneliness and isolation that can affect those struggling to talk about their experiences.

“Any Day Now is a story about someone who suffers with mental illness and keeps it bottled up without explaining how they feel to people, despite how much they want to because they feel uncomfortable about it,” explain the band.

“The chorus is almost a cry for help, and plays on the idea of having two personalities or feeling like you live two different lives such as on social media. We wanted to convey this in the video using the quick switching between both personalities.”

Anyone in need of someone to talk to about their mental health can contact the Samaritans helpline at any time for advice and assistance: http://www.samaritans.org/

The band will be playing a handful of select live dates over the coming months, including a date supporting hard rock band The Treatment at O2 Academy Oxford on 21st March 2019, with further live dates TBA.
