Serious Matters

Today, HM is proud to premiere the new music video for “Chasing Sunlight” from alternative/post-hardcore band Serious Matters. The song comes from the four-piece band’s latest EP, Through It All, the follow-up to their previous EP, Can You See The Sky From Here. The EP was written to illuminate some of the hardships the band faced in between the release of the EPs.

We spoke with guitarist/vocalist Kenny Byles about the track:

“‘Chasing Sunlight’ is about always following your happiness. A big theme for our band is depression and anxiety. Sometimes it’s hard to see the big picture when things are constantly being thrown at you or changing. The song is about taking a step back, accepting change, and trying to move on happily. The  music video shows how our happiness in life is simply being together and playing music.”

The band recently completed all the instrumentals for their forthcoming debut LP.

Andrew Voigt digs a little deeper into the Swedish band's roots, uncovers the narratives on the new release, and finds out how a little playground spat brought the band together.
