Alt-rockers Paper Monsters have issued the music video for their single “Red Light”. Frontman Matt Blanchette said of it:
“This song is the third single off our debut EP With Riddles. It was the last song to be written for the EP, completed only a few days before the studio process began. I liked the song enough and saw potential so I made an extra push to have it included on the EP. I wrote the intro/synth line late at night in bed next to my sleeping (then) girlfriend. I fell in love with the sound of it and decided it should end up being an aggressive rock song, more in tune to my roots and previous bands. The song ‘Red Light’ is about the Red Lights in everybody’s lives, and in my own especially. Things that hold us back from pursuing goals or passions that interest us and motivate us; usually a girlfriend or a job, anything that makes us feel complacent or settled. The Red Lights we encounter are less about brick wall barriers and more de-motivational issues that stop us from striving.”
“Red Light” is taken from the group’s With Riddles EP, out now and available at the band’s official store and iTunes.
