Sertraline Present Their New Single Isolation
New EP Clouded Minds & Silver Lines
Releases On May 15th
“Ooh, suffocating in this world, how are you surviving here?”
Words that, if you didn’t know better, sound like they could be describing the current lockdown for a lot of people across the world at the moment. But that is actually far from the reality of Sertraline’s new single Isolation.
Written back in November 2019 as part of the writing sessions for their upcoming EP Clouded Minds & Silver Lines, Lizzie, Mike, Tom, Si and Hendo had no way of knowing just how prophetic the lyrics of their new single would end up becoming. The follow up to Inside Out (the first single from Clouded Minds & Silver Lines and their most successful single to date), Isolation combines the timely lyrics with a soaring chorus, enormous riffs and a gigantic breakdown that will have heads banging across the UK and beyond.
The lyric video for Isolation can be enjoyed below. A full music video is in the works, but was unfortunately delayed due to the UK lockdown.
When it comes to the excitement around their new single, Sertraline guitarist Tom Wilson’s enthusiasm is quite obvious:
“I’m really looking forward to playing this one live. It’s like a bear; lovely to look at from a distance, but get too close and it’ll rip your face off. We’ve spent most of the past few months imitating Owen Wilson saying “Wow” over the bends. WOW. WOW WOW. WOOOOOOW.”
Isolation is the second single to emerge from Sertraline’s new EP Clouded Minds & Silver Lines, which will be released on the 15th of May. The artwork and full tracklist for the EP can be found below:

With blistering appearances at Bloodstock Open Air in 2018 and UK Tech-Fest in 2019, Sertraline been delivering the goods to audiences across the UK. Alongside the ‘Relapse’ single release in 2019, the band also found time to write the material that has become the 2020 EP Clouded Minds & Silver Lines, so crank up the riffs and come along for the ride!
