More Everlyne More Everlyne

Melbourne alt-metal outfit Everlyne have returned with The Inbetween, a turbo-charged heavy meets hip-hop banger starring Brisbane hip-hop artist Rivilin.

Vocalist Mackenzie Shaye commands in the trap-inspired track, firing up the band’s latest single and music video.

With powerful vocals in the chorus, recalling Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale, the Melbourne vocalist and her bandmates, brothers Nathan Borg (guitar) and bassist Jordan Borg and drummer Sam Stone wander through the titular, haunting Inbetween.

Produced by local heavyweight Chris Lalic (Windwaker, The Last Martyr), Everlyne make their presence known in Australia's booming heavy music scene. Shaye said about the new single, “The Inbetween describes the motion and feeling of taking back the power from someone who previously held it over you, whilst also learning to accept your own fate in the process.”

When Rivilin enters the bridge, it’s expected – you’ve been waiting for the guest vocal until now, after all – but no less fiery. Check out the music video below.

The Inbetween is Everlyne’s first new music since releasing their 2022 EP, It’s Not Me, It’s You, which found airplay support on triple j’s, Triple M’s Hard N Heavy, community radio and more.

In a recent interview with Kill Your Stereo, The Last Martyr vocalist Monica Strut discussed the importance of representation – particularly seeing women thrive in the heavy music scene who didn’t have to look or sing a certain way.

“It wasn't until I got into Butcher Babies that I saw women who looked like me,” Strut said, “It wasn't until seeing them [Butcher Babies] that I thought I’d been singing for nearly 15 years or something at that point; I felt like I needed to add another colour to the palette of being a vocalist.” So, she learned how to scream.

Learning to scream has been a challenge, “but it has really instilled in me how important representation is within the heavy music scene because it never occurs to you that you can do something until you see someone else doing it.”

Did we mention that there’s a sick scream at the end of The Inbetween?
