Matt Simons premieres personal new music video for 'Better Tomorrow'

Genero news27 August, 2020

PIAS Recordings and Matt Simons collaborated on Genero with LA based MALK Creative to create a boldly choreographed official music video for new single ‘Better Tomorrow’.

Today Matt Simons has premiered ‘Better Tomorrow’, an upbeat and infectiously catchy new track that intertwines personal experiences  of anxiety with the glimmer of reassurance and hope.

Says Matt: “Around the age of 18, I had my first panic attack and went to the emergency room because I thought I was going to die. It’s an extremely lonely and helpless feeling when our brains turn on us and create the feeling of imminent danger when there really isn’t any there. I hope the song can bring some comfort to those who also struggle with anxiety and mental health, especially during these unprecedented times”.

Genero team MALK Creative were commissioned to bring the song to life, with a captivating music video directed by VMA nominated Mercedes Bryce Morgan. Matt is joined in the video by two talented choreographed dancers, leading to a wildly visual and trippy exploration of identity, inner demons and the voices in your head.

Filmed during COVID-19, the video was shot on location in the Hollywood Hills, with strict production protocols in place to keep the full cast and crew safe on set!
