BROADSIDE Bare Their Thoughts on ‘Foolish Believer’
Coming to terms with the innermost thoughts that have haunted us since we were young can be a daunting task, but Broadside channel it into an unwavering honesty in new single Foolish Believer.
Pop-punk outfit Broadside have joined the roster over at SharpTone Records, and they kick off their label debut with impassioned new single Foolish Believer. Speaking about joining the record, vocalist Ollie Baxxter shares:
We’ve been working side by side with Shawn for years and he has helped us out a great deal as our manager. It feels more than natural to be signed to SharpTone for the next step of our career.
And if the single is anything to go by, the next step of the band’s career is shaping up to be very exciting. Blending hard-hitting lyricism with biting instruments that are unbridled in their intensity, it’s a track that holds nothing back. Unfiltered, raw, and unashamedly personal, the track is the gateway for a deeper bond between the band and fans as Ollie opens up about the feelings of self-doubt which can often sneak into our thoughts.
When I was 11 years old, I would sit on the edge of my bed and look at the cheap Walmart mirror hanging on the back of my bedroom door and pity the reflection. I realized at a young age I hated being alone even though I was incredibly good at it. Now, as an adult, I find myself chasing a dream that feels unattainable in hopes that I don’t have to see what I once did. I pay my own rent, I can afford a better mirror but the reflection still feels the same. I just want to be remembered. That’s the moral of the song. It’s selfish, to dream as much as I do but I’m sick of pretending I’m fine behind closed doors, I’m just not.
And with a single like Foolish Believer, we have little doubt that Ollie and the band will be remembered.
