“This song is one of the gnarlier breakup songs on the album. I wrote it with some pretty raw and immediate feelings, I think it was a good time to be writing emo songs. We wanted to keep the video super simple, just a moody aesthetic and straight performance shots.” (vocalist Callum Robinson)

Semantics debut full-length, Paint Me Blue, was released worldwide on May 20th via SideOneDummy Records. Produced by the band and mixed and mastered by Jack ShirleyPaint Me Blue was recorded in a purpose-built studio constructed by the band themselves. The result is an expertly crafted album that showcases their impeccable songwriting and mastery of punk and indie sensibilities that lands somewhere between the post-punk of Title Fight and Joyce Manor, the all-consuming emo of Ceres and the iconic Aussie flair of Luca Brasi
