Kobra and the Lotus, ‘You Don’t Know’ – Exclusive Video Premiere
Kobra and the Lotus are readying the release of Prevail I, the first disc scheduled for release as part of a two-part album. The Canadian rock quartet have partnered with Loudwire to present the debut of the music video for the anthemic album cut "You Don't Know."
The song skirts the line between hard rock and metal with groove-based riffs that control the energy, suspending the momentum built over the intro throughout the verse with a rolling, subdued chug. This sets the foundation for singer Kobra Paige's gleaming, almost ethereal voice to guide the mood of "You Don't Know," as a gentle piano melody accents her words. With tidal force, the cascading energy explodes as the chorus arrives, offering a clever push and pull.
"WHEW!! I'm beyond the universe excited for us to release our first brand new video for Prevail I!! We poured the essence of all of our years of growing pains, playing shows, touring, recording, and wholehearted passion, into this video," began Paige. "'You Don't Know' truly captures our energy to it's fullest authentic potential like never before. Every action in our life comes down to this exact moment and sharing it with all of you. This time it's playing full throttle in the rain and I feel like I've been waiting my whole life for this. Check it out as we firmly set the precedent for what you can expect to see from us as we hit the road with the new material!!"
