Doing something obvious for the song felt very vanilla to us, so when Alisa was writing the treatment we decided to go in a much more literal direction to define what The Last One means. The song is about being addicted to someone that’s taking over your life and it’s killing you, but instead of a person we wanted to use a poignant symbol that embodies addiction.The Aces
Red Bull Records signees The Aces continue on their path of greatness and this time around they bring us their gem “Last One”. The amazing track is part of their debut album ‘When my heart felt Volcanic’ and if you have not bought the album yet, this track will definitely make you run to the store or purchase it immediately online. The talented all-female band explores the correlation between mislead love and addiction in a way that is relatable and so connected to our humanity. They understand that at times we want it to be the last time, but it is always easier said than done. With the visuals, they decided to go with a more direct approach and show the viewers how addictions can change you, and not for the best. This is the case as well when you continue to want to be with someone who simply is not good for you and just wants to control everything about you. Enter their amazing soundscape and allow it to inspire and teach you something about you and where you want to go. Enjoy!
