Escuela Grind release music video for new single "Always Watching You"

escuela grind 24

New England extreme metal outfit, Escuela Grind, has dropped a new single and music video along with it. The single "Always Watching You" was recorded during the band's time with Kurt Ballou at his studio in Massachusetts while recording the group's as of now unnamed new album, set for release MNRK Heavy later this year.

Vocalist Katerina Economou shared the following:

Most of "Always Watching You" was written in a practice space by Jesse and Krissy, and refined during soundchecks we had over the year. I've had this desire to write a song where I could portray the obsessive-stalker-girl archetype through lyrics for a while. Although not physically threatening, it's really interesting that society is so terrified of this stereotype. In "Always Watching You", I wanted this fantastical, Nightmare on Elm Street-style imagery that was rooted in the gore and horror of death metal. Themes of parasocial relationships, anxieties from social media, and an omnipresent algorithm are strongly observed in this song and throughout the entire album.
