Independent alt-rock band Pharmacose debuted the video for its latest single this week.
The band debuted the video for the song ‘Checked Out‘ Tuesday. The video, directed by Kurt St. Thomas, finds the band performing its new single in a padded room backdrop. The setting is meant to help illustrate the song’s lyrical concept, which front man Wes Jones recently discussed during an interview.
“‘Checked Out’ has a more alternative-leaning sound and that just happened,” he said. “[Fellow Pharmacose member] Lu [Rubino] and I wrote it and recorded it in one session,” he said. “I had a musical idea, and Lu took that and expanded on it. Things just came together organically. I had started to write the lyrics and I wasn’t sure where they were going. I was kind of stuck, so Lu and I began talking about how we were feeling around that time. I personally was still trying to get my medication regimen right, so I wasn’t feeling bad, but I wasn’t feeling very good, either. I had isolated myself, mostly playing video games and training jiu jitsu. Lu used the phrase “checked out” while we were talking, and I jumped on that idea and finished writing the lyrics. It’s about escapism using digital media, be it through video games or social media, and avoiding the real world.”
