Eisley have premiered their stunning new video for “Always Wrong”, which comes from their recent album I’m Only Dreaming, out now on Equal Vision Records.
“This is a dark love song about an obsessive lover,” reveals vocalist/guitarist Sherri DuPree-Bemis of the twisted fairy-tale style song. “I was actually inspired by old Vampire stories and the Brothers Grimm. It’s sung from the perspective of the one who’s obsessed in love. ‘Dust from your hair, a small splinter from your back will keep my raging mind in check.’ Basically the character is twisted and they want to collect artifacts from the person they’re in love with so they can feel closer to them.”
She adds, “The chorus has them momentarily showing their insecurity and vulnerability by confessing ‘I know I’ll only let you down, I know you won’t stick around’ but quickly turning dark again by telling them ‘but I’ll make sure I keep you coming back.’ All of that being said it’s basically, when broken down, just a love song, but that was the story behind it.”
