The video was shot directed and edited by the band in Cape Town and the band had this to say about the video: “The entire concept was to create an honest depiction of how we hope people will feel about the song, specifically we hope people will dance to the song in their rooms, alone, in their underwear.”
Regarding the inspiration behind the track they add, “To be completely honest, “Careless Me” was never written with the lyrics as the focus of the song. The music and how we feel playing the song is what’s important. That’s kind of the murray. method. In this case, “Careless Me” is a venting session. It’s both a fond and not so fond look back at a time when /choices weren’t weighed down by their consequences so much. When love was perhaps best as short-lived as possible.”
The band will be making their live debut and launching the single on the October 25, 2019, at 8pm, at The Raptor Room. The show is FREE so grab your dancing shoes and go and party with Murray.
