Acclaimed Alt-Pop Songwriter My Silent Bravery Announces New Lyric Video via Vents Magazine
Matthew Wade had the following to say about the song: “This song could be the dark horse song of the new ‘Bigger’ album. When recording it with my team, Russell Ali said he thought this would be the song to break My Silent Bravery into the mainstream. The song has a pop accessibility to it. This song feels like the male version of a Taylor Swift romance song, and I mean that in a good way. I’m not afraid to wear my heart on my sleeve. Who doesn’t like a happy ending with a big, long-awaited kiss?!”

Dream Phases Share New Single + Video “Don’t Forget Love” Via American Songwriter
On the video, the band said: “The inception for the video began when our friend Spooky, who runs the LA art performance space Non Plus Ultra, called us to say he had inherited some set pieces from an old Mac Miller shoot and that we should use them to make a new video. We came up with an idea to recreate an old 70’s late night talk show, ala the Johnny Cash show, Dick Cavett, Playboy After Dark, complete with a host, an actress, friends sipping cocktails, and the band performance space. We built the set and painted the platform pieces colors from the New Distractions album cover. The video was shot all in one night and edited over the following weeks. It captures something of a combination between those old late night shows and public access tv, and was super fun to make.”
