Carried Away "Glass" (video)
Published Sep 30, 2016Toronto pop-punks Carried Away are ready to unleash a brand new video, and Exclaim! is giving you an exclusive first watch.
The band released their debut EP Intrepid earlier this year, but they're already working on the follow-up and set to show off some new material in the latest clip. "Glass" is a heavy, high-energy cut that pairs Madison Crombie's soft, melodic vocals with crunchy guitars and a harsh but upbeat rhythm section.
"'Glass' is a song about the numbness you feel after something tough happens in your life you were not ready for," the band tell Exclaim! "After initial shock and sadness of it wears off you are left not knowing how to feel, what to do with yourself, and you shut yourself down. You see things not as clearly as before (through the glass)."
The new clip showcases that sentiment, following the group from a dark, dingey basement performance space into the great outdoors.
"The video portrays a person's journey through that time, which is not always easy, towards the final freedom and acceptance of change," they add. "Things are always gonna be okay at the end, even if they are not right now. Just give it time."
