Arizona quintet ARCHETYPES COLLIDE
are (re)mixing it up by releasing an alternate version of their latest single!
The band has shared the remix of their single “My Own Device.” Listen to “My Own Device (After Hours)” here. Watch the visualizer here.
This synthwave-inspired remix boasts a nostalgic array of ’80s drums. It’s the kind of vibey jam you want to crank on a late night drive.
“Sometimes I feel like it’s useless to try to change my habits if I’m just going to fall back into the same vices,” says vocalist Kyle Pastor about the song. “‘My Own Device’ is rooted in that self-realization that the majority of my struggles in life always seem to trace back to my own doing. It’s a dark place to dwell in but I do think there’s value in shining light on my own flaws to give hope to others that might feel the same way.”
Previously, Archetypes Collide shared the video for the new song “Undertow.” Watch the clip, which features the band performing among frenetic lights, here.
Arizona quintet Archetypes Collide — Kyle (vocals), Tyler (drums), Brandon (guitar), Jared (guitar), and Ky (bass) — have been grinding and building a name for themselves since 2014. They’ve released two EPs, a handful of singles and covers, and set out on tour to get their road legs under them as live performers. Archetypes Collide eventually captured the attention of Beartooth’s Oshie Bichar, who began working with the band in the studio and helping to shape their sound. Very quickly thereafter, Archetypes Collide began to enjoy extensive support on SiriusXM’s Octane channel, with airplay of several singles: “Your Misery,” “Becoming What I Hate,” and “Above It All.” Bichar was then approached by accomplished veteran manager Thomas Gutches (Beartooth), about forming a representation team, and in early 2022, Fearless Records signed the band to a worldwide record deal. A tour with The Amity Affliction and soon followed, and the band also secured placement on the major Danny Wimmer Presents festival, Welcome to Rockville. Archetypes Collide’s debut album for Fearless will arrive next year.
