The track is the main title theme of the SONY Pictures January 2019 movie Escape Room, which was released in theatres last week.Utilizing a huge beat, analog synths, metal guitars, grand piano and mechanical noises such as gears, ticking clocks, pistons, and alarms all being manipulated and time stretched both backwards and forwards, this song is just as intense as its accompanying music video.
Directed by Aris Stoulil, the video features a protagonist attempting to escape from an ominous force in a highly stylized world of continually shifting landscapes.
On the video, Tyler shares “The concept of the video is all about escape. One protagonist that is trapped in an endless cycle; continually attempting escape, traveling from room to room and location to location in conflict with physics and logic as we know it.
And all the while time is running out of a metaphorical hourglass, the sand of which is burying our protagonist alive. Aris Stoulil shot an incredible video representing the idea of impossible escape on location with incredible skill and visual style. His direction captures the feeling of the music perfectly.”
