Brainsqueezed’s “My Fears in the Night” Video Elevates Single to Next Level

Based in Sydney, Australia, French musician and songwriter Sébastien Laloue began Brainsqueezed in the mid-90s. With a classic rock influence, a heavy dose of Porcupine Tree and other prog-rock contemporaries, and a decidedly alternative rock feel, Brainsqueezed’s latest, I Am Not a Robot, is a strong album on its own. However, the lead single is accompanied by a music video that takes the single to another level.

The lead single, “My Fears in the Night”, focuses on the way fear walks along side us in our lives, always lurking and sometimes even guiding us. Fear can become a voice in our heads and can often keep us from our full potential. Still we push through, hiding those fears and persevering. Lyrically, a powerful song. Musically, a solid alternative track with a driving beat and Marcello Vieira’s unique vocals. However, the song really takes on its most powerful form when coupled with the stunning visuals created for the song by Blue Cafe Music.

The video (below) brings the already solid song to new heights and begs the question if Brainsqueezed would consider further exploration of a full concept film with an accompanying album. This music and film fan, for one, would welcome the experience.

Justin has been running websites since his first Geocities site in 1994, but only did he ever start covering anything of substance years later. After he stopped regularly running local concerts in Northern NJ and the greater Philly area, he knew he needed to step up his writing game if he expected to continue to get free music to listen to. He writes regularly here and at Cinapse, as well as contributing to a few other sites on occasion. He likes music, film, the Philadelphia Eagles, the 76ers, talking about Criminal Justice, reading Intelligence Report, and his family... not in that order. His beautiful wife is far more talented than he is and his kids far more adorable... and crazy.
