Detention - "In Reverse"

May 10, 2020 - 415 views

Detention, a band from Akron, OH wrote a powerful teen anthem about coming of age during quarantine. The band was scheduled to play during the SXSW Music Festival in Austin on March 19, but it was cancelled due to COVID-19. The band has not been able to practice together during quarantine, but they found a way to share their music by individually performing for a new video.


The “In Reverse” video and song captures the isolation that many feel during this international pandemic. The band hasn’t seen one another since their last live performance on March 13—not even while shooting the video. The chorus for In Reverse: “Maybe we’ll grow up in reverse / and we’ll get younger while the world gets worse / while they’re so serious, we’ll laugh until it hurts / give us a school bus not a hearse.”
