Alternative quartet Prey Drive have released a video for their new single Socrates, taken from their forthcoming EP Neon God.
“Socrates is about growing older, while your body is slowly falling apart,” explains vocalist Bradley Smith. “Trends coming back into fashion that you remember the first time around. Experiences that you have to go through in adult life, like marriage, divorce and unfaithfulness making your perception of life and love slightly bitter. Relying on medication so your body doesn’t destroy itself prematurely. Wanting to go back to a simpler time. It’s all about having the years of life experience and wisdom on your side but not the optimism you had in your youth.”
“The song incorporates a quote from Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure in which Ted befriends Socrates by being philosophical with him saying, all we are….is dust in the wind, dude,” he adds. “I used this as a metaphor meaning that we basically only have a short time on this earth and things will keep on spinning long after we are gone, like they did before we were even here. So make the most of it. I used this just to sum up the whole theme of the song.”
Neon God is due for release on 28th May 2021 via Lockjaw Records, available to pre-order or pre-save HERE.
