Independent hard rock band Lydia Can’t Breathe debuted its latest single and video this week.

The band premiered its new single, ‘Sick Now‘ and its companion video Friday. The single’s arrangement is a heavy, melodic hard rock style composition. The contrast of the heavier verses and the more melodic choruses make for a rich, immersive work.

The song’s lyrical theme tackles the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, said front man Kyle Bolduc.

“I wrote these lyrics while quarantined during the first wave of Covid,” he said. “It’s a true reflection of how I was feeling at the time, and what we were all going through. All I was thinking about was how I wanted to do shows and get back in the studio. We couldn’t even practice together because we were all getting sick and s*** was changing life as we knew it.”

Added Bolduc, “I was actually sick when I wrote the song. That day I decided to smoke a bowl and wrote some lyrics about how we are sick now and the feelings I had about that. Looking back now at that time, I didn’t realize how relevant the song would end up being and the significance of the concept. We ended up liking the idea so much we decided to make it our next single with a music video.”

The video for ‘Sick Now’ features Bolduc playing the contrasting roles of a COVID patient and a politician, showing everything that has gone on throughout the course of the pandemic. Meanwhile, the band is shown performing its new single as the song plays over the overall visualization.
