Like a scene taken from a romance film, Sulat by CHNDTR comes barrelling in with the reality of inevitably falling out of love.
Another one for the broken and beaten, CHNDTR serves a painstaking music video for their latest single, ‘Sulat’. Nothing that we’ve never heard or seen before. But the music video of ‘Sulat’ by CHNDTR catches us off guard with the authenticity of fallouts.
CHNDTR has a classic alternative rock and pop-punk feels. Despite the concentration of newcomers settling down in the music scene, they have cemented themselves as one of the well-sought bands of their time. And they continue to prove it with their songs like ‘Sulat’.
The inevitability of falling out of love
‘Sulat’ sums up how people eventually fall out of love. From the dying spark to the cold shoulder until everything festers. All gradually leading to the breakup. There’s this lingering question at the back of your head, asking when and where did things go wrong. And no matter how hard you try to remind yourself, to remind your significant other about your love for each other, it seems like there’s nothing you can do about it.
The music video follows that premise. And it’s as agonizing as the lyricism of the song. It shows how the usual good moments turn suddenly sour and bad. Despite the efforts you try, it seems like there’s no going back to the way it was. Especially when they’ve found someone new. And just like that, they’re gone from your life. While you’re left in the dust with nothing but painful memories of the past.
