Underoath frontman Spencer Chamberlain alt/indie project slo/tide, has released the video for his latest single “It Always Seemed Easier“.
Reflecting Chamberlain’s personal journey with mental health, the track signifies a new direction for the artist, allowing him to explore the genres that have inspired him.
Speaking about it, he said:
“‘It Always Seemed Easier’ is a track about my mental health. I seem to always put myself last in every facet of life, and eventually, even when I feel like I’m doing the right thing, it catches up to me. I feel like I’m worried so much about others and how they feel/feel about me I forget to check in on myself. This song is just a reminder to myself to take a second and breathe, even when I remember past scenarios where it was ‘easier’ to fix before. I just gotta keep pushing forward and try harder.”

slo/tide “It Always Seemed Easier” Lyrics:
Let’s take a sec and figure things out
Cause my head is a mess and it always seemed easier
Momma told me to count to 10 and just breathe it all in cause it always seemed easier
I never took the time
To check and see if I’m alright
I never realized how fast it all could just pass me by
So maybe I’ll just stay in bed today
All these fake faces they seem to keep me awake
I always take things a bit too far, I don’t mean to be distant it always seemed easier mom
I never tried to impress myself I just stayed in my house cause it always seemed easier
Just take a second
If I want advice then I’ll let you know
I’m rollin the dice just to see how it goes
I popped a pill now to numb it all
I’ll see you in hell when this all wears off
