Indie-Pop band Battle Bloom [Malaysia] released a new music video for their single “The Fight (Round 2)” a few weeks ago.
Their latest effort is a reinterpretation of a song from their debut album Maps and Diagrams. This marks the band’s foray into recording with a full band set up, a distinct change in sonic territory when compared to the bare-bones acoustic vibe of their earlier releases.
“The Fight (Round 2)” was produced and recorded entirely by the band, with mixing and mastering by Big A Productions.
Lyrically, “The Fight (Round 2)” is a song that speaks of loss and love and all the feelings that come with them; a sense of bittersweet hopelessness. This, paired with a chirpy, Pop-esque musical direction, creates an intentional juxtaposition not unlike the band’s name itself.
The music video paints a scene of an internal struggle within the mind of an over-thinker. “We fall in love, we lose ourselves in love, then we fall out of love. The music video tries to visually convey what that emotion might feel like,” elaborates Sean Jesudasan, who directed the music video.
