This Space is Ours - 'Apology'

  • 2 min read

Bursting with power, This Space is Ours return with the electrifying pop-punk single ‘Apology’. Firmly staking their position as an burgeoning leader of melodic singalongworthy hooks, driving drums and face-melting solos, they return in 2023 stronger than ever.

‘Apology’ is a song in disguise, presented as a summer-washed pop-punk tune that conceals a darker lyrical undercurrent. Sacrificing none of the dynamism, ‘Apology’ confronts listeners with the confusing duality of the mind. Struggling to make sense of sadness and defeat, lead vocalist Gemma tackles these emotions under the veil of positivity.

Speaking of the single, the band explained, “The lyrics of the song tackle the tough situation of falling out of love with the person you're with. When things seem to have gone stale and cold but you're not quite ready to address it, out of the fear of letting go.”

‘Apology’ was recorded between Pony Music, Studio Delos and United POP. This marks the second  single the band have collaborated with esteemed producer Beau McKee (Earth Caller, Christopher Dicker, Between You & Me) on.

They continued, with Gemma adding, “This is one out of five singles we recorded with Beau McKee. We had a lot of fun with him in the studio and he ensured we were all comfortable enough to play around and achieve the exact sound we were looking for.”

Accompanying this release is an animated lyric video from the talented Joanne Lee. Found through a serendipitous instagram scroll, after a few messages back and forth they combined forces. The result is a surreal, sci-fi mind-warm of This Space is Ours’ logo, a punk spaceman, travelling through the galaxy in his spaceship while contemplating a lost love. 

This Space is Ours are a 5-piece Melbourne easy-core band that any existing fan of Paramore, Tonight Alive, or Stand Atlantic will find a new favourite in. Consisting of band members Gemma Dunsmore (vocals), Mark Sterner (lead guitar), Sam Pratt (rhythm guitar), Harry Wingrove (bass guitar), and Van Marks (drums), their refined and easy-to-love combination of pop, punk, and rock has begun carving out a dedicated fan base and caught the attention of industry tastemakers. 

At the end of 2022, This Space is Ours released their sophomore single ‘My Name’ which garnered high praise from publications such as Amnplify, AU Review, Gig Bill, Heavy Mag, Kill Your Stereo, The Rock Pit and more.
