For Melbourne band Saskwatch, headspace day provided the perfect platform to launch their latest single, Finger Painting.
Its message is one that draws on personal experience in coping with anxiety and depression, and the effect and pressures of alcohol and drugs in today's society.
“There's a lot of pressure out there in today's society... with social media, inequality and limited opportunity... the pressure to be like everyone else or to be successful can end up putting some people in the position where they feel they aren’t good enough”
he said. "With Finger Painting, I wanted to contrast the anxious lyric with the happiness of the music... a bit like how a lot of the time we feel like we have to put up a facade of everything being okay..."
Lead singer Nkechi said Australia needed to have a sensible and realistic conversation about how we approach drugs and alcohol as a country.
Saskwatch are touring their new album 'Manual Override', starting in Victoria on Thursday night. Click here for tour dates
