For the past decade, Canadian melodic hardcore quintet Counterparts have steadily risen to prominence through their honest and emotional songwriting. Their latest record, You’re Not You Anymore, is the fifth in their discography and shows that Counterparts haven’t lost their touch.
On new single “Swim Beneath My Skin,” streaming exclusively below, Counterparts deliver sad melodies that juxtapose with some of the heaviest breakdowns of their career.
“‘Swim Beneath My Skin’ is a song about how we allow ourselves to be so vulnerable it feels like another human being is literally making their way through your body,” vocalist Brendan Murphy tells Decibel. “It’s often terrifying but for me, it’s necessary.”
Listen to “Swim Beneath My Skin” below. You’re Not You Anymore is coming on September 22 via Pure Noise Records.
