Feb. 25 — Independent rock band Post Profit released its new album this weekend, and with it another new single and video.
The musical arrangement featured in ‘Smother!’ is interesting because of its overall composition. It follows a sort of slow burn approach, starting off in a distinct subdued, brooding fashion. From there, the arrangement turns soon after into a more aggro-rock style work that blends elements of Tool and Deftones into one for a unique musical presentation.
No information about the song’s lyrical theme is presented in the press release announcing the premiere of the new single and video. The lyrics that accompany the song’s video hint at the song centering on the matter of a personal relationship between two people. One person is seemingly trying to get the other to express his/her thoughts, rather than holding things in. At the same time, the main subject seems to be putting out there the impact that the other person’s non-communication is having on him/her. This is all this critic’s own interpretation.
The video for ‘Smother!’ features the band performing its new single in a studio setting of sorts. It crosses that with footage of the band making its way around an unidentified city. The video effects that are used with the video enhance the presentation even more.
