The dynamic americana-folk-rock trio, The End of America who are James Downes,Trevor Leonard, and Brendon Thomas, share their latest video “Monsters, with the Hype Machine listed blog MOTHER CHURCH PEW. The song is part of TEOA’s monthly song series set to continue throughout the remaining months of 2019.
“Monsters” follows TEOA’s recent single “Break Away”, which, according to the band’s Trevor Leonard, attempts to answer the question, “how do we push ourselves to explore new ground? How do we be productive, remain inspired and find the impetus to keep moving forward?”
“Monsters” is a series of questions to a friend, each one an attempt to achieve a deeper understanding of the darker elements of reality, and figuring out how to emerge from it relatively unscathed with your love intact. Another highlighting point is that the video was produced by band member Brendon Thomas. “I found public domain footage from a 1970 experimental film called ‘Omega’ by Donald Fox. It is loaded with psychedelic imagery and features three men who appear to be contemplating their place in the cosmos, a.k.a, our band,” he explains. “It appears Donald Fox intended it to be about death and rebirth of mankind, which is fitting when you consider the song’s chorus.”
