The promotional cycle for Sylosis‘ 2023 album A Sign Of Things To Come has a loooong ass timeline, with numerous singles and music videos peppering the internet in a bid to remind you that the British deathcore band’s out there with some new shit you might like. Earlier today, they added another notch to their tally of digital reminders with the release of an official music video for the track “Absent.”
Described as an “introspective” side to the album, “Absent” uses the song to get a little darker and quieter with their music. Frontman Josh Middleton said the song represented the band going to uncharted places with their sound.
“Despite having always included darker and quieter songs in our discography, ‘Absent’ represents uncharted territory for Sylosis, while staying true to our commitment to melody and emotion in our music. The video also breaks away from our usual style, and we’re grateful for director Daniel Grey’s efforts in creating something out of our comfort zone. We’re excited to have invited our new friends, Zetra, to bring a fresh perspective to the track with their reimagined remix. Their dark synth influence really adds a new dimension to the song, which we love!”
As for the song’s overall tone and message, Middleton explained that the song comes from a very personal place.
“This is a more personal song and I wanted to push myself to try a different direction lyrically as well as with the music video. The song is about being so wrapped up in your own troubles that you neglect to see or appreciate that other people around you may be hurting or in a far worse place than yourself.”
You can find the full music video below.
