“Delivering countenance of truths we all need to hear, Brisbane rockers Semantics blend the seriousness of R U OK day with Ben Lee’s We’re All In This Together optimism to check in with the mental health of humanity on their sophomore EP, If You’re Not Alright” – Music Is My Muse.
True to punk-rock philosophy, Semantics spares no effort to connect with their listeners on a personal level on and off the stage to remind fans that it’s alright if you’re not alright.
Since their pivotal stand-alone single, ‘Cemeteries’ debuted on triple j’s last year, Semantics have been hard at work refining their craft to match their newfound direction. Describing their sound as “somewhere between punk-rock, indie, emo and Aussie rock” the Brisbane quartet returns with their sophomore EP, ‘If You’re Not Alright’.
Sounding like the likes of Violent Soho, The Menzingers & Title Fight, each song is unique, containing its own lyrical message within the overarching theme of the challenges of maintaining one’s well-being while transitioning into a working-class lifestyle.
