Hailing from Manchester, England, the pop punk act Fight For Friday have released a music video for their new song “Target Practice”. “Target Practice” comes off their upcoming EP Someone You Could Trust, which was recorded at White Bear Studios, and will be self-released on the 11th of May. The British four piece is made up of vocalist Seb Harper, Lloyd Scott-McCullough on guitar, Sol Barrow on Bass, and Matthew Grosvenor on drums. Fight For Friday are filled with energy in this new track.
Vocalist Seb Harper comments on the song itself as “the most intense and serious song that we’ve ever written. It’s about people when they see you doing better than them, they are constantly trying to drag you down; how you’ve got to rise above that and brush those toxic people off if you want to succeed in anything.”
This is certainly reflected in the lyrics, as it clearly speaks of a particularly questionable person who is trying to use someone else for their own personal gain, whilst having no thoughts for their feelings at all. It speaks of letting go of this person, and getting away from them so you can flourish without their negativity holding you back.
“Its funny how you think you’ve got it sorted when you ain’t got shit going on.”
“Target Practice” also features some quality guitar riffs that will stick in your head and have you humming them for hours, as well as making it ridiculously difficult to sit still whilst listening. Seb Harper’s vocals are infectious, as he finds the perfect mix between soft and hard, nails the melodies, and smashes the chorus out of the park, creating a very catchy pop punk tune.
The video itself is rather dark lighting wise, as it was shot in Seb Harper’s very own living room. They wanted the video to completely contradict the song lyrics, “as the song is obviously intense and dark, a living room setting contradicts that, as a place where you would relax and chill out in.”
With a fun pop punk sound and some solid meaningful songs Fight For Friday are definitely worth a look, so check out “Target Practice” on all music streaming services, as well as watch the music video below. You can also find the track on our Spotify playlist: The Depth List: 2018.
