Six days ago, the hip-hop/soul group Tank and The Bangas debuted a brand-new song called “Worry,” which explores the insane hypocrisy of anxiety as the featured artist explores his deepest anxieties.
In this R&B song, the narrative of a guy who suffers with uncertainty and the disturbing fear of unintentionally hurting others around him is told as he is progressively led to ruin by the demons within of him.
These feelings are accurately captured in the single’s accompanying music video, which was created by Tank and the Bangas. The video’s most short summary is provided by D-Money of Soulbounce:
“The clip starts with a quote from the band which reads, “The biggest demons we fight will be the ones in our very head.” We then see a man sitting alone in a red room seemingly going out of his mind as he stares at a red pill on a white plate. Things quickly become a cacophony of strobing lights as the members of Tank And The Bangas play the roles of his inner demons.
They soon begin to torment the poor guy as they present him with his own personal horror show. The band is dressed in varying representations of straitjackets and horrifying masks that are sure to give him (and us) nightmares for quite some time. Luckily, this nightmare is under three minutes and ends with him all alone again — though the mask he’s left holding might indicate otherwise.”
