11.4.12 - New Music - Matchbox 20
Yes, that’s right – another new Matchbox 20 single.
Only a little while ago, the pop/rock band released a video for the album track “Put Your Hands Up”. I’m quite confused as to what is going on with the album though. “Overjoyed” was released as the official second single (behind “She’s So Mean”), but the video for this song and another (“Our Song”) came out before that for “Overjoyed”.
My hope is that this and “Our Song” were promotional singles or something, and not that they just had so little faith in “Overjoyed” that they didn’t bother making a video until later.
Either way, I could see this being a good third single. If they get the right kind of push behind the song, it might just work. It’s got that “Disease” feel, and the lyrics are ready for the mainstream Top 40.
You don’t think of Matchbox 20 as a band that will make you dance, so I think the fact that the video focuses on people dancing in a club (what looks like a rock club though – good directorial choice) is great. People are scared to dance to something that has guitars in it these days, and that’s a shame. MB20 are trying to change all that, and this might just be the track to do it.
