Rising Edinburgh pop-punk band Woes drop their new music video for “Over It”. Watch the music video HERE. The track is the final single on the band’s latest EP Self Help, which was released this past May via UNFD.
“’Over It’ was one of the first songs we wrote for Self Help, and it was the first song we wrote where we made a conscious effort to try and write something that didn’t sound like a traditional pop punk song,” states Woes frontman David “DJ” Jess. “We’ve always been into heavy music and we wanted to write something heavy, that still sounded like us.”
“Ironically, the lyrics in this song are probably the most optimistic we’ve ever written, in spite of it sounding way more aggressive musically. It’s about identifying negative traits or aspects of your personality, that don’t benefit you in any way, and getting rid of them. For me, I spent a lot of my youth not doing things because I was afraid I would fail at them, and a lot of the lyrics focus around that, and how I’ve tried to push those feelings out of my life the last few years”
“Over It” follows previous singles “HLB2”, Losing Time”, “Real World” and “High On You”, all of which have garnered support from massive outlets such as Alternative Press, BBC Radio 1 Rock Show, Rock Sound, Kerrang! Magazine and Radio, and Upset. All five tracks are featured on Woes EP, Self Help, out now on UNFD and can be purchased HERE.
Woes have had their biggest year to date with the success surrounding the release of their EP Self Help. Just this year, the band has had a headline U.K. and Scotland tour. They’ve also played support shows for Neck Deep, Seaway and Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, as well as festival slots at this year’s Slam Dunk, Galaxy Camp, Download and 2000 Trees. Topping it off, the quartet are slotted to support State Champs alongside Seaway and Stand Atlantic for a massive 17 date U.K. and European tour.

Proudly wearing a mantra of Good Vibes Save Lives, Woes endeavor to push the boundaries of pop punk. This is the only the beginning.
