One day before their concert in Worchester, M.A. One Day Waiting dropped their new single “Slave.”
“We had the idea to do something really unique with our music,” said ODW.
“Slave” was inspired by “Break Free,” a song off their EP The Key that focuses on working passed hardships. In recreating this song, they wanted to showcase life’s darker days, when perseverance doesn’t seem like an option.
“‘Slave’ embodies the environment and emotions created when vices drown you, and you feel like there’s nothing you can do,” said ODW.
In both the album cover and music video, fans get a glimpse of these “sins” and “poisons,” as described in the single’s lyrics. From drug and alcohol abuse to a gambling addiction, the video encompasses the many struggles faced daily.
“We wanted a song to let people know it’s okay if you can’t overcome your demons,” said ODW. “There are other people feeling the exact same way.”
Although pessimistic, the lyrics, “I’m your slave,” do not dictate ODW’s overall message.
“We just want people to know that they’re never alone, and that there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel,” said ODW.
