Octopus Montage drop new single, “A Shortcut”

Octopus Montage now continues the formation’s mission to showcase unique versatility and diversified musicianship through the quartet’s third single – the demolishing and personal “A Shortcut”!

Explaining the intentions for creating a product of this sort, Octopus Montage collectively adds. “Arguably the heaviest song on the upcoming record record, “A Shortcut” outlines the issues of living with a mental health issue. The song goes into depth on the experience of going through a dark patch for a prolonged period of time, with the use of extensive screaming, lack of clean vocals and multiple breakdowns, creating a picture of the difficulties some individuals face.

Written based upon past experiences, Alex not only expresses the difficulty of enduring the issues (“so tell me how do I lie to make myself feel better on the inside”). But also expresses emotions such as guilt after coming out of an issue and having made loved ones lives extremely difficult due to the issues, (“Why don’t you fucking hate me when all this pain has come from me”), creating a 360° picture of issues that can sometimes be seen as 2 dimensional.”
