Set It Off’s Lyric Video For ‘Bleak December’ Should Make YOUR December 100% Less Bleak

Why? Because jazz hands.



Speaking of the track, frontman Cody Carson has previously told us:

"This was one of the most fun songs to write that I've ever been a part of - in my entire life. This was one of the first ones we worked on with Brandon when we started pre-production for the record too. Here's the catch though, Brandon just moved into his new place and neither of us had access to a guitar or any instrument, all we had were previous voice memos and our voices. There was a demo floating around at the time of Michael Jackson's "Beat It" and it really inspired us. We decided to write this song completely a cappella and then just transferred it from there to voice memos. Dan sang the voice memos, Brandon sang background instruments and vocals, and I sang the leads and the lyrics. It was a huge step out of our comfort zone but I truly feel it made it one of the strongest songs, melodically, on the record."

If you like what you hear, be sure to pick up / download Set It Off's stunning new album 'Duality'. Or maybe go catch them on tour next year with Crown The Empire, Dangerkids and Alive Like Me? If you REALLY like them, you could do both!
