This week Track Seven Band released their video from the project, the title track — “The Try An The Fail.”
The EP is a call to action, and a therapeutic piece of music for the band’s lead singer Cost, who confronted the loss of his mother to cancer during the seven-song project.
“The Try And The Fail” was the project’s anthem of hope in the face of seemingly overwhelming misfortune. The video attempts to demonstrate that from many angles. There are many such examples presented in the 3-minute clip, from the stand against injustice in Ferguson to the iconic image of the late Muhammad Ali standing above the vanquished Sonny Liston — an iconic image of victory/perseverance that has endured for decades.
The video takes the lyrics which focuses mainly on Cost’s drive to overcome his obstacles and globalize them into a call for union. Whether it be against greater systems of oppression, or rampant social issues that affect not only our well-being but communal future. It’s a plea to keep it going regardless of whatever happens.
Given the climate of today’s world, which feels like it’s only one false move away from imploding, the song seems like a necessary injection of positive energy.
It’s a powerful message, and a appropriate end to the project’s promotional run. There hasn’t been a date set in stone for the release of the impending Album, however, if you haven’t stayed updated on Track Seven Band, please do yourself a favor and check out their project.
