Set It Off debuted another new single this week.
The band debuted its new sing ‘One Single Second’ Friday. The song is yet another b-side from the band’s recording sessions for its 2019 album Midnight. The song’s arrangement presents a very distinct pop sensibility, which is very similar to many of the songs from Midnight.
Front man Cody Carson explained in a recent interview, the song’s lyrical theme centers on a real-life story of broken relationship.
“For this song, I brought myself back to one of my worst memories of relationships I can remember — the first time I got cheated on by my first love,” he said. “the entire song is basically telling the story of how I felt the connection fade and started putting the pieces together. It’s got that angst, that aggression that mysterious feeling of ‘Do I know for sure?’ ‘Do I not know at all?’ I think a lot of you have been betrayed like this before, and this is the song you can hold onto to let it all out.”
The debut of Set It Off’s latest single comes just over a month after the band debuted another new single, ‘So Predictable‘ and more than two months after the band debuted the single ‘Catch Me If You Can,’ both of which are also b-sides from the sessions for Midnight.
Said Carson about ‘So Predictable,’ “We’ve all been there before — same argument, same issue, same nonsense, different day. This is one of those songs written out of complete frustration of those kinds of moments — whether it be someone you love who you butt heads with or someone so irritating yet you can’t avoid them. We had a blast making this song because of the overall attitude that surrounds it.”
In discussing ‘Catch Me If You Can,’ Carson had the following to say.
“‘Catch Me If You Can’ is that quintessential middle finger to anyone who doubted you or really wronged you in life or in your pursuit of your dreams,” he said. “I’ve personally and unfortunately experienced an incredible amount of this on our journey. I’ve been laughed at when I told people what I do for a living, I’ve been betrayed by my closest friends, and I’ve been told no time and time again. To me, that’s fuel. It’s motivation to show that this path is something that I was born to do. Success is the best revenge. My hope is that this song can reach out to anyone who needs an empowering song to pick them up and inspire confidence in themselves to keep fighting for what they truly want in life.”
