Eva Under Fire debuted their first single with Better Noise Music entitled, “Heroin(e),” and the Detroit-based rock band is giving Music Mayhem readers the exclusive first watch of their acoustic music video for the track.
“Heroin(e)” is a very personal track that touches on the issues of substance abuse, which lead singer Amanda Lyberg know far too much about as she lived the story behind this heart-wrenching single. “My parents struggled with substance abuse my entire life with one surviving it and the other not,” Lyberg previously explained. ”It honestly means the world to me that this song is part of the Sno Babies film. We are all screaming the same message: Awareness is needed! Recovery is real!”
When discussing the track with Lyberg, she admitted “the story behind ‘Heroin(e)’ comes from a very personal space,” before explaining, “the original track with the full band conveys a ton of anger and aggression. But when we had the opportunity to do an acoustic version, it was a whole new emotional roller coaster full of desperation and heartbreak. For me, it was another way to experience a different side of this song that’s just as honest and just as real.”
In the exclusive acoustic music video, the band truly allows the emotion behind the song to shine with a stripped back version of the song.
Watch the full acoustic music video for the track below.
The song is included on the recently-released soundtrack for the film, Sno Babies (Better Noise Films), enhancing the film’s message of hope and the power of recovery.
Eva Under Fire has spent the past two years working on their upcoming album, which is set to be their most ambitious and fully realized release to date. “We really wanted to challenge ourselves with this record and focus on melodies and writing the best material that we could come up with,” Amanda explains. “We really came up with the best of the best when it came to our songwriting. Some songs are fun, others are more emotional.”
