Highly Suspect Sharpen Their Guitar Rock Throwback

Highly Suspect is a gritty mixture between Queens of the Stone Age, Velvet Revolver, and Band of Skulls with a tiny bit of Kurt Cobain's darkness. The Brooklyn-based trio just released a music video for "Serotonia" to follow-up the Grammy-nominated debut album Mister Asylum and with such a simplistic approach to the video, it portrays heavy messages and raw emotions.

In the video, frontman Johnny Stevens is singing directly into the camera while the scene bounces between a run-down shack in the desert of Joshua Tree, California, to a NYC rooftop during a blizzard. Stevens' emotionless expression draws all the focus to his mouth singing the lyrics, as if he was talking directly to you and wanted you to absorb each word. At first listen, "Serotonia" appears to be about moving from New York to California to experience the bliss of the Golden State. "New York, you know I love you / because you made me into who I am / Which is not that good of a person / I need to feel something again." But it could also be seen as a metaphor to many life events: moving on from a past love, ditching bad habits, cutting ties with toxic people, or even entering a new stage of life.

Get lost in the nostalgic-rock guitar chords and heavy drum breaks as you gaze into Johnny Stevens' deep blue eyes in the new video for "Serotonia."
