Lit is a band best known for their late 90’s singles “Miserable,” and “My Own Worst Enemy.”
The rockers have decided to explore country roots, as is illustrated by their latest music video “Fast,” which premiered on CMT.
Like Darius Rucker and Steven Tyler before them, Lit has been working on new music in Nashville, Tennessee and it appears that the town has helped shape their new sound.
They shared their music video for their new single “Fast” yesterday (Oct. 25). In it, the guys don flannel shirts and perform the song on acoustic guitars in a rustic setting complete with longhorn skulls. “Fast” is all about growing up and how quickly life moves. Scenes fitting that trope intercut between the band’s performance: A pregnant couple revels in their baby, a child reaches a new height and a couple ages on a porch.
Things take a melancholy turn at the end when death rears its head and things are over far too quickly, but the band’s chorus sticks to a hopeful, if religious, note about faith, family and love.
Check out their new direction below.
