Hot off the heels of their debut EP ‘Turning Point’, Australian indie-rock band, Broken Waves, release their new single ‘Come Alive’. This upbeat dance-rock song will have you head banging and singing along like you have known it for years. The track uses the imagery of a phoenix being reborn as a metaphor for overcoming mental illness, playing with alternating themes of both falling down and picking yourself up again. 


Over the past year, the band have been using their lyrics to explore and express their personal experiences with mental illness. To take this a step further, Broken Waves have decided to partner with mental health organisation, the Black Dog Institute. The result of this is a limited run of ‘Come Alive’ merchandise with 100% of the proceeds being donated to the charity. There will also be a link shared on their social media if you want to donate but not commit to the purchase of a sweater.


With Ben Lyons-Reid (Vocals & Bass), Will Physentzou (Lead Guitar), Declan Oetjen (Rhythm Guitar), Heath Oetjen (Drums) and Matt Evans (Keys), the group have eagerly been building their foundation in the Adelaide music scene and are ready to make a splash with their new single, Come Alive. Tune in as this is only what the band claims to be the beginning of a season of new material.
