Berkshire rock band Elasea have dropped a new video for their track Time Is Against Us. The new visual finds the band putting a new spin on a track which featured on their 2015 debut EP Where I Belong.
This new alternate version finds the band stripping back the track and taking a more minimalist approach as Liv from the band explains;
The song ‘Time Is Against Us’ is about getting older and running out of time to do things in your youth. When I started writing it I was thinking about quitting music as I didn’t want to end up in my late 20s playing the same level of shows we were playing then. (A room of about 6 people who couldn’t care less).
That’s where the line – ‘time is against us’ came from! At the time I was made to feel that women in this genre had a time limit to be successful. I guess I still feel that to a certain degree, but there are a lot more women in bands SLAYIN’ now, so I just get on with it.
The original version of this track is a lot heavier, possibly our heaviest track, so stripping it back like this was a bit of a test for us.
Video wise we wanted something visually appealing, the rest of our videos have been full band so again this is quite different to our usual, but we absolutely love it!”
The band are currently working behind the scenes on new material for a brand new EP as well as touring up and down the country.
You can catch Elasea live at the following dates:
