WORDS BY TARA CAMPBELL
Sydney Three-Piece rock band Autosuggest have just returned with their newest release ‘Not Yours’ and all I have to say is that if you were looking for a new go-to track, it’s here and ready to be listened to.
It’s a dark, electro rock track that I’d describe as the lovechild of Nine Inch Nails and INXS. If that’s not enough to convince you to listen to the track, I’m not sure what will. It’s surprising to hear something with this unique sound that hasn’t been perfected by a band since the mid-90s. Autosuggest have absolutely demanded attention with Not Yours and it’s rightfully deserved.
“Not Yours’ is a clearly defined line in the sand: a defiant acknowledgement that you’re better off alone.”– Emma Jones (on behalf of Autosuggest)
With Alex Mallia on the distinctive and unique vocals, met by the phenomenal Jack McFarlane and Jordan Sexty, this track is everything you could ask for and more. Somehow, the single artwork by Joanna Frank perfectly encapsulates the dark and mysterious, but also mechanical and clunky sound of the track.
Sonically, this song will send you into a trance; on repeat in your mind. I can’t wait until live music returns because I’m already begging to experience this song live. Most songs don’t leave me wordless, struggling to put emotions into a few words for a review… Not Yours has taken control over my mind and all it’s telling me is to play it over and over again.
If you want to invest in an artist’s career before they blow up, I highly suggest Autosuggest.
