Impressive from the outset as quick-finger riffs meet with the heavy tumble of live drums and a clear level of nostalgic intensity – Serious Matters ignite a fresh take on post-hardcore that openly connects.
Having debuted back in 2016, Serious Matters have honed and recrafted their sound to a pristinely engaging degree. The natural passion and grit of alternative rock stands tall, but with this comes faultless musicianship, unquestionable unity between band members, and a brilliantly authentic and compelling manner of song-writing.
Offering drawn out vocals that are far more hard-rock or grunge than pop-punk, Glitches shines brightly for its uniquely gripping structure. The band utilise contrast beautifully, rising up and dropping in, a stop-start energy that effectively reflects the changing emotions of this deeply personal yet also broadly relatable story-line.
Glitches talks on toxicity, being bold and brave when it comes to speaking out on behalf of your own values or perspective, and it does so in a manner that urges you to turn up the volume and escape entirely into the moment; a result that comes largely from a band so naturally willing to do so themselves when performing.
Undoubtedly on the cusp of something big, Serious Matters are gearing up to release a brand new album, and this single and video promises an exciting longer project of depth and power united.
