The latest single from Market junction is the heartfelt, familiar story of relationships unravelling. We can all relate to the recognition that the initial, overpowering love and connection has gone and the resignation of, “It’s just easier to live here in the way.” We are delighted to share this exclusive video premiere in the week the brand new album will be released. The Houston-based act deliver new full-length LP ‘Burning Bridges’ on 7th August, which promises to be a melodic, well-crafted collection on the strength of singles ‘Out of Love’ and ‘Nebraska’.
Frontman, Matt Parrish, says of ‘Out of Love’: “This is a beautiful song and a cautionary tale – when romance turns to routine, love gets flipped upside down. We see it all around us – nice family/home/job, little league, carpools, Sunday school, yet, another marriage eaten by the system. The sign over the door in the entryway says, ‘all because two hearts fell in love.’ They hung that sign years ago, now it’s a sinister taunting of what has become of their connection. No one takes it down. They pretend. It’s easier that way.”
The well-produced video intersperses footage of the band performing with a couple who have fallen out of love, reading out the lyrics like a confession. It’s emotionally resonant as they mouth lines like: “We never needed silent treatment // Because it’s been a year since we had anything to say,” giving context to Parrish’s smooth vocal. Check it out.
