Brisbane pop-punk quartet Waxflower reveal their music video for newest single “Getting Better”. An emotional song about struggling with anxiety and the toll it can take on those closest.
Drawing from personal experience, frontman Tristan Higginson explains. “‘Getting Better’ was me tying a bow on a dark period of my life. A particularly long and intense panic attack had landed me in the hospital. Every attack at the time felt like a failure. As if it were erasing any hard-earned progress on a long journey to betterment. I noted the impact of that night on the people around me – we all felt defeated. I felt ashamed.
The song catalogues that period and its aftermath, the breakdown of a relationship. It helped me to explore the roots of my feelings at the time and work towards accepting the outcome was for the best of everyone involved”.
