Evanescence are gearing up to release their fourth studio album, titled Synthesis. It is unlike any Evanescence album before, heavily influenced by orchestra sounds. It’s almost a remix album of their biggest hits, with inclusions of some original tracks too. “Imperfection” is the second single from the album after they released a brand new version of “Bring Me To Life”. Now, they’ve dropped a music video for the said single, and we are loving it.
On first listen, “Imperfection” is a total Evanescence song. It has Amy Lee’s brilliant rock vocals, and would totally work as a rock song; yet, the symphonic sounds of the orchestra adds that brilliant theatrical side to the song that was very much needed. We may have had our doubts about this album when it was first announced; but, now, the band has certainly enthralled us. We cannot wait for the full album.
As for the music video, it translates the song brilliantly into a visual. It is pure art, as most of the fans are saying. According to Vevo, the music video was directed by P.R. Brown, and the song was composed by Amy Lee, Will Hunt, Tim McCord, Troy McLawhorn, and Jen Majura.
Watch The Music Video For Evanescence’s “Imperfection” Here:
This is the band’s first music video since 2013’s “Lost In Paradise” – although Amy Lee did go solo for a while and even released the epic “Speak To Me”. The video opens with raindrops as we hear piano chords. It’s quite the dreary start as Amy Lee is shown at a bus stop in the wet weather.
The other scene, during this part, sees a young girl watching two medics wheeling a body down the road – not something we want a child to see. Clearly, the child has lost a loved one. The child runs away from the ambulance, frustrated and upset, maybe even angry.
This intro takes up two minutes of the video until the song actually kicks in with the orchestra. A third of a minute later, Amy Lee starts to sing, in this dream-like warped world; the same place the girl finds herself in.
This world gives the girl some positivity, some hope. The very end sees Amy Lee standing and embracing the rain. The scenes of the girl, from the start, could be Amy Lee when she was younger, spinning this music video into some powerful art visual.
“Imperfection” is available to download and stream right now. It is the second single to be taken from Evanescence’s upcoming fourth studio album Synthesis; the album will be released on 10 November 2017.
