Austin, Texas pop-punk band Gold Steps have unveiled their new music video recently. You can check out the video for their song “Empty Space” below.
Vocalist Liz Mauritz commented:
Seeing my grandmother cope with my grandfather passing devastated me; their marriage was the bar I set for my own, and I can’t imagine losing my other half. The pain of losing a loved one is universal, and ‘Empty Space’ is about the aftermath and anguish of life moving on while you’re stuck in the cycle of grief.
She also commented on the video:
The pain of losing a loved one is universal and ‘Empty Space’ is about the aftermath and anguish of life moving on while you’re stuck in the cycle of grief. The video is about losing a significant other – and it can be taken as a physical loss of death or the end of a relationship, though it is more influenced by the former. We wanted to capture the moments [when] you miss their presence, their smile, their smell, and how being reminded of them can derail an entire day. The places you used to share now feel hollow and haunted without them around. Maybe the only way to move on is to donate their clothes and other belongings that remind you of them, but you hold on to the pictures and the love letters. The pain can get better, but though it might fade, it never goes away; that’s the essence we wanted to bring to the video.
