Acting staple in the Denton House venue scene, locally-based alternative rock band Sad Cops released the music video to their single “It’s Eating at Me” on Friday, Aug. 25. The band’s first-ever video plays heavily on the their suburban influence with moody hooks and surprisingly refined, emotional lyrics. The video accompanies the first single off their album titled “Liam Murphy Holt.” The group, native to North Texas consists of Grayson James Harris on lead vocals and guitar, lead guitarist Mills Chaiken, Colin Wheeler on keys, Christian Meyer playing bass, and Nathan Fox on drums.
“Filming the video was the most fun I’ve ever had,” said singer, Grayson James Harris.
“This video was so true to the music, suburban rock music video filmed in a house. Really with truly good music, a couple hands, some good ideas and good light you can make a badass music video,” said music video director, Austin Roa.
The single features the musical staples of Sad Cops’ dynamic and melodic style. Resonant and heavy sounds coincide with heartfelt melodies, while offering a look into the band’s bright future in the alternative music scene.
“For a band that makes music rife with angsty emo lyrics and rudimentary instrumentation, Sad Cops’ music is oddly refined. It’s minimalism at its best and Grayson Harris’ vocals and songwriting come across as earnest and impactful,” said Central Track. “That sentiment is even easier to digest when you see the band in action like in this new, charming clip for “It’s Eating At Me.”
