“The video for “Back Down” comes with a powerful performance,” Keeho shares. As a band, we worked hard on this new album to make a project our fans would enjoy while also exploring a new side of our musical journal.” Jongseob admits that “Back Down” is his favorite P1Harmony track; “it’s the first single released by the band that he would listen to as a fan” so he really enjoyed working on it.
Speaking to writing the lyrics for the single, Intak explains his inspiration comes from the album concept. “Since we’re talking about friendship in this album series, I couldn’t help but think about my friends and loved ones. So I twisted the idea a bit: “If you’re not my friends, GET OUT OF MY WAY.” I thought it would be a fun way to say it!” “Since our next album is about friendship” Jiung added, “this music video tells the story of building those friendships.”
“The music video for “Back Down” conveys a lot of stories and required a lot of acting.” Theo had fun getting to show off his acting skills and shared that the “acting skills really improved for all of us while we were shooting the video.” Soul also nods the detail on set “was a lot of fun working in such a visually interesting environment. I also had a lot of fun getting to act!”
