Independent rock band Drop Top Alibi debuted the video for its latest single over the weekend.
The band debuted the lyric video for its new single ‘Eyes For You’ Friday through v13.net. The video is a unique take on the concept of a lyric video. That is because of its approach.
The video uses one steady, continuous shot of the band performing its single in a dimly lit studio and places the song’s lyrics next to a glass of beer on an amp. The amp vibrates throughout the song, causing the glass to shake, though it never tips over. This minimalist approach to the creation of a lyric video is a rarely used approach for such presentations. Most lyric videos out there today are more artistic, with lyrics featured in specific fonts and styles against a specific artistic background.
The musical arrangement featured in ‘Eyes For You’ is just as minimalist as the video. It is a 90s guitar rock composition that is accessible in its own right. The juxtaposition of the softer verses and the heavier chorus sections adds to the appeal for the band’s target audience.
The lyrical content featured in ‘Eyes For You’ comes across as being a social commentary, considering the mention in the song’s lead verse, which states, “Look at the costly/Habits and your broken will/Conceptual bodies/Gotta get your nightly fill/Eyes for you/Like a pretty little cover girl/Eyes for you/Like the pusher man rule the world/There’s a monster under the bed/So they sleep on the floor/Now the monster won’t be alone no more.” That seeming commentary continues in the song’s second verse, which states, “Governing bodies/And doctors/Pass the blame around/Killing you softly/A generation sold by the pound/Eyes for you/So the world will come around/Eyes for you/Because the shaking under your brow.”
‘Eyes For You’ is available to stream and download here.
