It's time to "Pray."
ARTISTdirect has teamed up with NYC-based pop band The Cleopatra Club to premiere their video for "Pray." The song lives on The Neon Collection, their EP, which is out November 4.
Why not get to know 'em now via the "Pray" video?
"'Pray' was written to be an anthem for people that have experienced forbidden love, or lust," the band told us. "We wanted both the song and video to be a story of escapism. We truly admire that one song can mean something so different to each distinct listener. The lyrical content may be dark, but we wanted there to be a bright feel to the music to reflect the different emotions the human mind may feel from doing something 'wrong.' Whether you take this song as being a boastful message of enjoying giving into temptation, or if you take it as trying to achieve some sort of forgiveness for your sins, we hope you find some sort of hope within the song. The video tells a story of a girl who is trying to break free from the restraints, in this case, of her father to be with her forbidden lover. The two won't let anything stop them from being together, especially forgetting perhaps the moral consequences of their actions. We hope you enjoy the first song from The Neon Collection. Stay tuned."
Tuned, we are staying.
And with all that in mind, it's time to "Pray."
