July 30 — Independent rock band Matter of Mind premiered its latest single and video this week.
The band premiered its new single, ‘Take It Back‘ and its companion video Thursday. The song features a musical arrangement that blends elements of alt-rock and emo-punk for its body. The song barely tops the three minute mark, clocking in at approximately three minutes, five seconds, but the arrangement’s depth leaves listeners feeling fulfilled by its finale, which itself features a heavy but brief breakdown as the song’s final statement.
According to front man J Lambert Philip, the lyrical theme delivers a deeply introspective message.
“The song is very self-reflective whilst also acting like a mirror of someone else’s actions,” he said. “It almost portrays a feeling of realising everything you thought was right, was all wrong. Everything you know is wrong, and you’re right about it. It goes to show that yourself and others’ actions affect each other more than most probably realise.”
Added Philip, “It’s a bit of a deep cut for myself and hopefully one that people can latch on to, like the lyrics latched onto me. We’ve had this track under our belts for way over a year now, but now feels like the right time to release it after the incredibly difficult year or so the world has had.”
The video for ‘Take It Back’ is a relatively simple presentation. It features the band performing its new single on a darkened set. The set is illuminated only by a group of subtle backlights.
