We’re pleased to bring you the premiere Elements.’ music video for their song “Make It Out Alive” (watch it below). The track is taken from the band’s Where We Once Begun EP, produced by Phil Gornell (While She Sleeps, Bring Me The Horizon), is available now through iTunes. The band comments:
“The track is about being stuck in one of those moments we’ve all experienced; feeling trapped in a situation that you don’t want to be in and that you don’t know how to get out of, and you just can’t see the end of the tunnel. We wanted to write something people could relate to, that feeling of hopelessness. And we wanted it to kickass so that even if people relate to it because they feel down they can scream their hearts out and get some catharsis.”
Robin Small (Guitar) adds:
“The chorus lines that interweave support each other – the whole ‘stop me/because we/won’t make it out alive’ and ‘I need something to help me move on/I need something that I rely on’ – in that it all hits home about being stuck and needing somebody to pull you out of that funk and stop you from making it worse for yourself.
This video was also so fun to make. Not only because we got to do it in two parts, in an old bunker in Southampton and at night in a maze in the Isle of Wight (freezing!), but also because we got to have our friends help us make it. Our buddies Matt Savage from These Septic Stars, a great local band, and a model friend of ours called Emmaleigh (Zenigame Satoshi, check her out on Instagram!) helped us put some new faces in the video and let us try having other people for a change. And we think it looks badass.”
Born in Southampton and formed at the end of 2013, Elements feature Graham Rogers (Lead Vocals), Ollie Butler (Guitar and Backing Vocals), Robin Small (Guitar), Max Bakker (Bass and Backing Vocals) and Ash Martin (Drums). Their compelling and powerful live show has seen the band open for acts including Bad Rabbits, The Afterparty, DEAD!, Ashes To Angels, The Hype Theory and Public Service Broadcasting, as well as touring across the country with They Say Fall, Elessar, As December Falls and You Know The Drill.
