WATCH THE EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE OF SERIOUS MATTERS’ NEW MUSIC VIDEO “GLITCHES” ONLY ON OUTBURN.COM
New Jersey alternative rockers Serious Matters have unveiled their first new music of 2021, with new single “Glitches.” “Glitches” tackles issues of mental health, with Serious Matters’ trademark 00s alternative rock delivery incorporating elements of emo and post-hardcore on candid new track.
“This track treads the line of not being able to speak up for yourself when needed and letting go of disloyal people. This song was put together in separate entities due to the Covid-19 pandemic, so not everyone was together all at the same time until we hit the studio. The music video is all of us finally being in a room together again, recording the song and enjoying being around each other for the first time in a year.” – Kenny Byles
The quintet takes influence from across punk, alternative rock, and post-hardcore, delivering a sound that balances impactful, driving guitars with emotive lyricism. Nods to the likes of Taking Back Sunday, Coheed and Cambria, and Thrice adorn the new single, which tackles topics of mental health with a gritty but accessible delivery. “Glitches” is the band’s first new material since the release of summer 2020’s Mistaking Wasps For Dragonflies.
