SONG & MUSIC VIDEO REVIEW
“Serpents” by Neck Deep
Written by: Courtney
Another amazing music video by Neck Deep! "Serpents” definitely made a perfect fit for Neck Deep. The animations put into the music video are exactly what goes through your head while listening to the song, which is why the animations have such a great fit to the song. “Don't get too close, that place is haunted. Fear not the ghosts, cause she sent them running”. You can see at the beginning of the music video, one of their first animations is a haunted house which is relevant to the song. “I gave her my heart, she didn't want it. Took it anyway and put a dark spell on it. Since then I haven't been the same”, I found this part in the music video, the animations were very well used. It shows the animated woman ripping Ben Barlow's heart out and feeding it to a snake, the snake then turns into a demon like creature.
From start to finish, you can’t help but nod your head to the beat and sing along. Though this song is about heartbreak, it’s very face paced and catchy, so you can’t help but fall in love with it. The slower paced parts bring out a Blink 182 sound that flows with their sound, thus creating a well written song. This song definitely gets an 8 out of 10 for the wonderful sound and how well the video relates to the lyrics. It was put well together. You can find this song on YouTube or their newest album "Life’s Not Out to Get You". ALSO, you can find them on tour with State Champs, Knuckle Puck and Like Pacific!
