The Band Perry Stages Human Chess Match In ‘DONE.’ Video
Where The Band Perry’s first single from Pioneer, “Better Dig Two,” showcased a blend of both new and old-school sounds (mandolin and banjo as well as guitars), the brother-sister trio’s second single is loud and proud all the way through. It’s titled “DONE.” — and yes, the name is in all caps and the period at the end is deliberate, because it’s meant to be a statement that cannot be misinterpreted.
“‘DONE.’ is a song that Reid and I wrote about a relationship where one person is giving all they have into it, and the other person is just taking it all in,” Neil told Radio.com. “I know the three of us have definitely had those kinds of relationships, where the person who keeps giving is just done with it. They’re not getting anything out of it, so they just cut it loose.”
“And it can be a relationship, or maybe it’s a bad habit, maybe it’s a job,” Kimberly added.
In the ACM Award-nominated band’s new video for “DONE.” they stage a human chess game where they’re the musical entertainment. With the white side dressed in Revolutionary War-era garb and the black side wearing outfits that look like the costumes on Game Of Thrones, it’s clear something evil’s a-brewing.
The two sides soon stop playing nice and start getting in each others faces, but like Kimberly sings, “I don’t believe in getting even but giving what you deserve.”
Oh, and don’t worry – Kimberly lets ’em have it.
