Trash Boat has released their new track, “Break You.” The aggressive single explores unexpected anxiety and how to navigate through it. It serves as the UK act’s first new music of the year and gives fans an idea of what they can expect sonically from the group.

A motion sickness-inducing music video accompanies the single, with singer Tobi Duncan in the center frame. In black-and-white, the video only captures the small surroundings of Duncan, which illustrates how constricting anxiety can be while everything moves around you and simultaneously closes in slowly. Instrumentally, there’s a nu-metal energy that taps into screams that are akin to Linkin Park’s late vocalist, Chester Bennington.

Duncan explains that after experiencing a tenacious time in life, he wrote the song. “‘Break You’ is about the single most significant period of fear and anxiety I have ever had in my life, I’ve never felt anything like it before or since.” He continues, “I was reduced to a constant feeling of indiscriminate fear, not of anything in particular, just fear. It felt like it was the beginning of the rest of my life. Like I was going to feel this way or worse forever. I couldn’t even get out of bed or leave the house, let alone tour, travel, socialize, or work.”

With the single, he says that out of that difficult time, he was able to work through these negative thoughts: “And yet I made it through and learned a lot about myself and what I am capable of, so this song dives into my thoughts surrounding this period.”

They’re gearing up for their only show of the year, dubbed One Night In Heaven, slated to rock London at Heaven on May 9. Fans can buy tickets here.
