BEST EX (formerly Candy Hearts) feel the end-of-summer nostalgia coming on just like the rest of us, and have put out the bittersweet “See You Again” video, premiering on EARMILK. “See You Again” is the first music video under Best Ex’s new name and is the latest single off of Ice Cream Anti Social, released last month on Alcopop! Records. Watch here
Mariel told EARMILK the song was born out of a connection made on Warped Tour years ago, saying “it felt like every day was just counting down to when we’d never see each other again.” The nostalgic nature of the song is reflected well by the video’s filmic, handheld movie reel styled production.
With catchy, fuzzy bass, guitar, and drums, “See You Again” serves as the perfect bridge for Best Ex from their previous work, with the subtle use of keys and Mariel’s background vocals and “oh’s” throughout the chorus representing the much more electronic and layered approach to songwriting the new direction has taken. The fusion of past influence and present direction is seamlessly connected by Mariel’s sweet, yearning vocals and lyricism.
