Tallah have premiered a new video for their new song “L.E.D.“ This track is from the band’s new album “Matriphagy,” which will be released on October 2.
Frontman Justin Bonitz commented:
“‘L.E.D.‘ is my personal favorite song on ‘Matriphagy‘. To me, this is the essence of that old-school, Nineties nu-metal fused with 2020 hardcore, and some sludge. We have rapping, turntables, driving guitars, groovy drums, and some funky-ass bass, all over a weird time signature. The track is pretty weird and unpredictable as a whole. Vocally, I love to sing this song! The chorus is bound to get people pumped up, and the final breakdown should be illegal.
In terms of ‘Matriphagy‘, this song takes place right after ‘Placenta.’ Lyrically, it represents a relapse (non-drug/alcohol-related). With ‘Matriphagy‘ being a concept album, all the songs flow into each other, especially the lyrics. The themes build and revolve around the other tracks, and ‘L.E.D.‘ relies heavily on the messages from ‘Placenta‘ and ‘Overconfidence.’
If ‘Overconfidence‘ is about realizing your flaws/who is controlling you, and ‘Placenta‘ is about cutting loose from that, ‘L.E.D.‘ is about being a coward, turning back/giving in, getting angry you were not strong enough to deal with the situation, but blaming it all on someone else instead of taking responsibility for your own failure.”
