Alternative outfit Eleven Green introduces their new music video, “Watch Me,” a track lifted from their recently released album, Against the Odds.
Speaking about the song, Eleven Green shares, “‘Watch Me’ encapsulates the societal narrative that often seeks to instill fear from a young age. It portrays the notion that one’s endeavors are destined to fail, urging individuals to conform and lead unassuming lives.”
As the narrative unfolds, the chorus resounds with the empowering lyrics “Watch me, watch me as I fly away.” This phrase takes on additional layers of meaning through clever Armenian wordplay, where ‘woch me’ translates to ‘nothing.’ Further nuances emerge as the lyrics continue, transitioning to “You know nothing” in Armenian.
Made up of Miki and Nare, Eleven Green arrived in 2018. The band’s name – Eleven Green – merges the cherished number of Miki and Nare’s favorite color. Their sound blends smooth melodic vocals with layers of visceral electronic textures.
Nare reveals, “Our songs encapsulate both love and struggle, forming a powerful amalgamation. Whenever we perform, our goal is to transmit this energy to our audience through our lyrics and musical composition.”
After performing numerous concerts in their hometown, Eleven Green took off on their European tour. Their musical journey saw them gracing stages in Warsaw, Berlin, Cologne, Amsterdam, Brussels, Madrid, Ourense, Rome, and Yerevan. During the global pandemic, Eleven Green maintained their creative momentum, continuously releasing new tracks on the 11th of each month.
Last year, Eleven Green was nominated for ‘Debut of the Year’ at the ‘Phoenix’ Caucasian Music Awards.
“Watch Me” opens on spectral, emerging tones, highlighted by a deep, vibrating bassline. When Nare’s vocals enter, the song expands, taking on a ghostly milieu as Nare’s wicked, Siren-like voice infuses the lyrics with a pressing sense of imminence. Alluring and dripping with beguiling flavors, it’s definitely one of the best voices extant.
Oozing an oil and water feel that imbues the tune with dark edginess, with “Watch Me,” Eleven Green produces a superb song.
