Grunge rockers Marisa And The Moths release new video for “SAD”

Grungy rockers Marisa And The Moths have released the video for new single, “SAD”, from their highly-anticipated second album, What Doesn’t Kill You, due for release 3rd May.

Drawing inspiration from bands like Alter Bridge and Evanescence, Marisa And The Moths have created a sound that is both familiar and innovative. With elements of pop-infused alt-rock bands like Paramore and Flyleaf, ‘SAD‘ is an exploration of the unspoken struggles beneath a seemingly content exterior.

On the new video, the band comments, “The music video for “SAD” portrays the complexities of battling depression while maintaining a facade of happiness. Marisa’s solo performance subtly conveys the emotions of isolation, loneliness, and vulnerability, against the neon-like backdrop reminiscent of a teenage girl’s birthday party. The video perfectly complements the upbeat pop-rock sound of the music. It’s a thought-provoking exploration of personal struggles due to societal expectations, including self-medicating and social masking, inviting viewers to reflect on the universal challenges of fitting in while staying true to oneself.”
