Four piece Italian indie band Eugenia Post Meridiem have returned with their first triumphant single and video “willpower”, taken from their upcoming sophomore album like i need tension.
One of Rolling Stone Italia’s twenty Italian musical promises for 2020,”willpower” marks the quartet’s first release this 2022 after 2021’s double single release “LIFE SLEEPER”.
An eclectic mix of soul, jazz, folk, indie, psychedelia, and 90s, “willpower” is the perfect song for the end of summer.
“‘Willpower’ touches the very concept of thought, brought to life in the mind of a teenager,” the band says. “Following the motions of how that thought can build, grow and transfer onto others. All of which is expertly detailed and reflected in the structure of the song itself from the chord progression never fully resolving to the change in harmony of the chorus, with the final chorus acting as a ‘shared experience’ of minds and overall collective communion of thoughts.”
The video starts with the band in a room filled with seemingly random objects, as they sort through books and other objects to take with them on their journey. Each member carries their own box to their car, then they take us along for an aesthetic ride through the city streets and neighboring mountains. Creative videography stands out – shots are reflected in glasses, and with the way it is filmed we feel like we are in the back of the car with them going fast through the tunnel.
We can tell in this video how well the band gets along, as they truly look like they are having so much fun while doing what they love; their dancing is groovy for sure.
Eugenia Post Meridiem’s sound is eccentric in nature. Keep an ear out for like i need tension, out Nov. 18!
