Independent rock act In The A.M. gave audiences their first preview of its new album last week.
The band debuted the lyric video for its new single ‘Back Seat’ Sept. 11 through v13.net. The song is the lead single from the band’s forthcoming EP What Have I Become. The record is scheduled for release in 2021, with an exact release date under consideration.
Band founder Alex Shimp discussed the EP’s creation during a recent interview.
“When writing the EP, I was going through a tough time mentally,” said Shimp. “Struggling with depression and anxiety on a more elevated level than usual, these songs were written as a coping mechanism to let out some pent-up energy and emotions that I was dealing with.”
“I really tried to give this music significant purpose from the listener’s perspective this time around and made it a goal to give people something to relate to beyond the surface level,” added Shimp. “I want to give people songs to help them deal with their trauma in an almost therapeutic way and assist them in getting through their most trying times, the same way bands like Three Days Grace and Matchbox Twenty did for me in my younger years,” added Shimp. “We all need to know that we are not alone sometimes.”
The ‘Back Seat’ lyric video places the song’s lyrics over what is meant to be a watery background. The song’s infectious arrangement, whose foundation is formed through its guitar, bass, and drums plays along with the lyrics’ presentation.
The song’s lyrical content comes across as taking on the all-too-familiar topic of a couple at a key point in its relationship.
‘Back Seat’ is available to stream and download here.
