Out via the German label Out Of Line Music is the new Corlyx single and video, “Wasted And Alone”. The video was directed and edited by the duo’s Caitlin Stokes who recently also shot the Lord Of The Lost video “Dead End”.
Caitlin Stokes of Corlyx shares her inspiration for “Wasted And Alone”: “You ever have the worst night out because you’re too stupid to handle your liquor? This is the story of that time for me; I think many of us can relate. Ultimately, I think this behavior is entwined with self-sabotage. We take these risks, we hurt ourselves in the name of fun, it is so isolating and bleak…but we often go back for more, a cycle we can only break once we heal the wounds that drive us to these vices.”
And she adds: “‘Wasted & Alone’ is a trip back to our destructive self-sabotage past. Both Brandon and I were teenage druggies; we had a lot of trauma to unpack before we were capable of taking better care of ourselves. This song doesn’t glorify substance abuse. It’s the acknowledgment of our very real and human coping mechanisms. We party, we isolate, we numb, we were all young and sad once.”

Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
