Stare Into the Dark is a distortion-driven punch in the guts that harkens back to the golden era of Australian Rock. Sitting above a bed of tremolo guitar, organ and loud, vibing drums is an imagery-infused recount of insomnia and the anxiety that can follow when you lie awake in bed in a pitch-black room.
