Chapel's newest song, "Friends," is the epitome of "You Don't Know What You Have Until It's Over." Pop duo singer Carter Hardin experienced this firsthand with his own friends, and Chapel's video for the track brings his troubles to life.
The look, debut on Billboard below, sees Hardin dealing with the fact that none of his friends are interested in spending time with him. First singing the song during a picnic in the park with bandmate Kortney Grinwis (apparently Cardin's only friend left), the two then go to a spa where he sees Grinwis laughing with friends – and really hits him for being alone. .
"In your twenties, it's easy to get involved in the ambitions you have for your life. I realized I was making excuses and helping a lot of people, not keeping my relationship broken," Hardin explains in a statement. Music inspiration. "Friends is an apology, because at the end of the day, it's not worth dreaming if you don't have people there with you."
Fortunately, Hardin's accomplishment helped him heal some of the friendships he hurt, and he and Grinwis even recruited another friend, Max Moore, to help create the "Friends" video. "He has a great driving approach and we always have a lot of fun working with him," adds Hardin. "We really wanted a simple but catchy video that really captured this new era of CHAPEL, as well as the message behind the song."
"Friends" is Chapel's first taste of new songs since the duo released their debut EP, Sunday brunchin November 2017. They have more songs in store, with a full debut set to arrive next year.
