EMOTIVE NEW SINGLE
‘WYWFM’ ALONG WITH ALLURING
SUPPORT FOR ‘WYWFM’
“WYWFM is a modern emo jam with all the vocal melodies you could want and a and half-time chorus you know you’ll be singing along in the front row of a show.”
“It’s a powerhouse performance by the entire band, full of layered interplay and intricate chemistry.”

Following on from their release of ‘Flower’, Sydney-based post-hardcore group Isotopes have just revealed their poignant new single ‘WYWFM’ – produced by Stevie Knight (Stand Atlantic, Yours Truly, Between You and Me) and mixed by James Paul Wisner (Paramore, Underoath).
‘WYWFM’ launches with a sweeping texture of imperious drums, soaring guitars and vivid piano before the resolute vocals of frontman Justin Miller direct the song’s eloquent melody. Intricate harmonies and instrumentation guide the song to its anthemic chorus, widespread with elevating chords and impassioned lyrics. The band’s chemistry is highlighted with complex rhythmic techniques and dextrous song writing, while the track’s message stresses one of life’s dilemmas.
Alongside the release of the track is the glamorous accompanying music video – directed and produced by Chris Elder of HausParty (Polaris, In Hearts Wake, Northlane). Shot in Sydney’s Marble Bar, the video focuses on the narrative of lust-guided temptation while the band performs the song in polished outfits. The sophisticated plot follows two characters searching for love before watching everything fade out of view during the song’s climax.
Miller talks about the meaning behind ‘WYWFM’:
“’WYWFM’ is about realising the path of chasing love always leads to heartbreak, so for the first time you’re putting love aside and somewhat asking that it waits for you whilst you choose yourself. The concept of the video is about lust/love/temptation. A game of cat and mouse accompanying these feelings. Finding that once you obtain all of these feelings that you’ve ever so been craving, it disappears; you’re calm, you’re alone. So, was it ever really there?”
