In advance of their latest album, You the Few is proud to premiere the new music video for the track “Confession.” The video was done by Lance Alton Photo + Video, and the song comes from their upcoming album, It Is Well, set to drop on Sept. 23. The album with be the band’s sophomore full-length release, following 2015’s Taken at the Flood. (Preorders and bundles are available through the band’s website.)

We spoke with vocalist Nao Lewandowski about the song:

“‘Confession’ is meant to show that shame is an internal conflict that every human being encounters at some point, but it’s also only as consuming as we make it. We can be free as soon as we accept the freedom in front of us.”

Citing influences such as Silent Planet and Underoath, the band features a dual female vocal attack, including guitarist Shekinah Langford on clean vocals. The band, formerly known as Eleutheria, formed in 2013 after meeting at Visible Music College.

Disclosure: Vocalist Nao Lewandowski is also a writer for HM.
