Kobra and the Lotus’ ‘Let Me Love You’ Sounds Awesome Even in Japanese – Video Premiere
Canada's Kobra and the Lotus made a big splash last year with Prevail I and now they're inching closer to the April 27 release of the album's successor, Prevail II. They recently released the new single, "Let Me Love You," and now they've teamed up with Loudwire to bring you an alternative version sung almost entirely in Japanese.
The video cuts between performance shots of the band and Anime-styled cartoons where frontwoman Kobra Paige stars as the story's pink-haired protagonist.
Frontwoman Kobra Paige commented on the lyrical mindset of Prevail II, stating, "Humanity. One of the greatest struggles of our human existence is to retain it. This sequel album takes a deeper dive into the darkness of our psyche and explores the personal torment and struggle we inflict upon ourselves, one another, and the earth."
She added, "It has become commonplace for people to give up on themselves and lose their belief in their abilities and self-worth. This, in turn, affects our daily actions/behavior. We are a cripplingly, self-harming species but we are also profoundly capable beings of altruism, evolution, and positivity. This album will close the 'Prevail' double sequel on the lightest of all notes by acknowledging that every single person has a desire to be and deserves to be truly seen, loved and heard. When the ignorance is cleared, we can recognize that we are all in this together."
