Famous Last Words have finally dropped their new single and music video for “Pretty In Porcelain” through Alternative Press! It has been almost two years since we have last heard new material from them, excluding their acoustic track “I’ll Be Home Soon,” and this release solidifies how unique and talented this band is.
Both the video and lyrics tie into the album’s name. It shows a man (an Incubus) oppressing a lady by dressing her up, cutting her hair, and “playing with [her] like a porcelain doll.” It makes her feel mentally trapped and disturbed but she is paralyzed and unable do anything to help herself making it seem like a nightmare. The lyrics unfold the story to the listener and the video is a perfect portrayal of it.
The song has the typical FLW sound - catchy clean choruses with epic screams! There is not much going on with the instruments at the beginning and the vocals are the focal point throughout the song. This highlights JT Tollas’ dynamic voice. The overall sound may be slightly less heavy than their previously released songs but that doesn’t mean it’s not as good!
“Pretty In Porcelain” gets a perfect 10 out of 10. We are excited to see how the story unfolds in the band’s upcoming concept album “Incubus”, out on September 30th, and we know we won’t be disappointed. Pre-orders for the album are available NOW so get it ASAP!
