Independent rock band Watch Me Breathe is working on its third album, and as work continues on the record, is giving audiences a musical appetizer.
The band debuted the lyric video for its single ‘Cruel Machine‘ Friday. The song’s musical arrangement presents a distinct emo/pop punk sound while its lyrical content delivers a commentary about the plight of working class Americans.
Band founder and front man Jake Aaron Ward discussed the concept behind the song’s lyrical them in a recent interview.
“This song is about capitalism,” he said. “The inspiration came from the many experiences I (and most of us) have had encountering miserable, tired, old employees at grocery stores, gas stations, etc. Lifelong hourly-wage work is the story of millions and millions of people all over this country, and it’s hard not to feel like they are victims of a cruel machine they were forced to be a cog in.”
‘Cruel Machine’ is available to stream and download through various outlets here.
